Januar — Dezember


Dig up the classic yet sinister roots of the world’s largest Georgian planned town on a self-guided walking AUDIO TOUR, with an architectural designer as your narrator.

The tours are location aware, so you will hear directions and stories as you move. You can pause anytime. 

In 90 minutes, you’ll learn how Edinburgh became the largest planned town development in the world – and a “model city”. The narrator will share old maps and drawings with you. 

Although its original Georgian fabric has suffered many alterations, the tour will show you clear traces of the former neoclassical city. You’ll see the often overlooked details in the fanlights and elegant ironwork of the original New Town street lights. 

On this route full of breathtaking landscapes, you’ll dive into the economic and political influence of the union between Scotland and England.

You can look forward to seeing:

  • The only villa in New Town 
  • One of the first semi-detached houses in Scotland 
  • My favourite urban sequence in Edinburgh
  • The first planned square in the city 

Along the way, you'll discover:

  • What inspired the designers of the New Town? 
  • To what extent were the New Towners’ fortunes connected to slavery? 
  • Why was so much of the now listed Georgian New Town demolished? 
  • Why won't Edinburgh clean its blackened sandstone facades?
