ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Historical Edinburgh Walking Tour for Two

Take an informative tour of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, and watch its murky past unravel before you.

This absorbing walking tour of Edinburgh will captivate curious locals and visitors alike. Prepare to turn back the pages of time, as you escape the tourist trail and uncover the secrets of the venerable city streets.

The tour departs from the Royal Mile Police Box – one of Europe’s most expensive pieces of real estate per square foot – and leads you between some of the area’s fascinating historical sites and lesser-known oddities. You’ll benefit from the expertise of an engaging local historian as you discover some of Auld Reekie’s most intriguing tales – such as how the city became home to the world’s first skyscrapers, or how it spawned the inspiration behind Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. You’ll learn about the origins of the Black Market, follow in the bloody footsteps of Burke and Hare, and even visit the grave of Ebenezer Scrooge! Expect plenty more well-researched anecdotes along the way, with just a dash of the macabre!

The Historical Edinburgh Walking Tour for Two voucher would make an ideal gift for any keen historian planning a trip to the Scottish capital.

Just a small group on a rainy day, but very informative and some funny stories and nice to know a bit more about Edinburgh.
