In the UNESCO World Heritage site, just north of Princes Street, we will explore the largest Georgian planned town development in the world.
For a complete insight into the chic Georgian lifestyle we will get a sneak peak into a spacious private Georgian garden!
Through architecture we will unfold the cultural context of Scottish enlightenment, and the political background of the union between Scotland and England.
While walking the ordered, symmetrical grid of New Town streets lined with extravagant townhouses we will learn about the blackened sandstone facades, magnificent iron streetlights, sunken basements and numerous chimneys so typical to the New Town.
Small group tour, so booking is essential.
