Eat The World Leith Walk
Explore the coolest, most vibrant and the longest street in Edinburgh on this international guided walking two and half hour ‘long lunch’ food tour. There are six delicious stops on Leith Walk:
Leith Walk has been on the international food stage since the Romans arrived with amphoras of wine for R and R. This food walking tour reflects Scotland’s wealth of visitors who stayed and brought their fantastic cooking. I was spoilt for choice when devising this tour as so many vibrant cultures have made this area of Edinburgh their home. Walk the rampart from Calton Hill to Leith (that is how Leith Walk started) to keep Cromwell at bay to the actual port where whalers docked ( they picked up some penguins which ended up in Edinburgh Zoo) Rich in history and food culture - this is a vibrant international walk.

There are six delicious stops on Leith Walk: Swedish meat balls, Kenyan mezze, Turkish boreks, Greek orange cake and coffee, Portuguese egg tarts and of course something Scottish- a visit to a traditional sweetie shop for Edinburgh Rock and tablet; Leith Walk was built as rampart to deter Cromwell, now it is a dynamic link from Edinburgh to the port of Leith.
