We think the best way to explore Edinburgh is to follow your feet. Where the buses can’t take you, and the guide books don’t show you is where our city’s stories lie – the closes, wynds, courtyards and homes of Old Edinburgh.
You’ll visit the sites that are tucked away to see the secrets and tell the tales. We’ll help unlock our fascinating past – the culture, crime, politics and people of Scotland’s capital.
