A fascinating half day walking tour of Edinburgh taking in the medieval Old Town and the 18th century New Town with writer and professional tourist guide Alasdair Northrop. You will hear about the many characters who helped to put it on the map.

Edinburgh is one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. It has the huge natural advantage of its stunning setting amidst extinct volcanoes but it is also on the global map because of its architecture, art and the people who helped to create it. King David I established the Old Town in the 12th century and Provost George Drummond helped to found the New Town in the 18th century. You will hear their story and see the buildings associated with them. The city was also home to many influential characters including Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes; Adam Smith, the father of economics; Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone and JK Rowling the author of the Harry Potter series of stories. The walk can be honed to meet the interests of the group.

Maximum of eight people. Face coverings must be worn. Alasdair has a Covid 19 Good to Go certificate.
