Discover the grandeur of Georgian Edinburgh through buildings and gardens designed to impress.
Last year, 2017, was the 250th anniversary of the adoption of James Craig's plan for a 'planned, élite suburb' which would eventually separate Edinburgh into 'Old' and 'New' Towns. To celebrate, Greenyonder Tours collected stories of some of the people who made the New Town - from the architects and builders, servants and high heid yins, to gardeners and radical campaigners.
This year, we are extending the route of this tour to explore a little further into what's called the Second New Town, down Dundas and Howe Streets.
See beyond the railings: each tour will include a visit to a privately-owned New Town garden.
Greenyonder Tours is an Edinburgh-based company, offering walking tours around the city that bring you closer to people and places you'd be unlikely to encounter otherwise. We specialise in tours of gardens and green space, and how these special places link into the city's past and present.
