Description

Begin by meeting your guide in the center of the city. Make your first stop the Dean Village, a charming area of Edinburgh with an intriguing medieval past. Once the bakers’ hub, the Dean Village still retains some mill stones and stone plaques decorated with baked bread and pies. Continue towards the New Town, and admire elegant examples of neoclassical architecture including The Georgian House. Be transported back in time. The beautifully decorated interiors and lavish furniture offer an insight into what high society life was like in 18th and 19th century Edinburgh. Next, head to the Scottish National Gallery. Discover the artworks of some of Scotland’s most famous artists including Sir Henry Raeburn, Alexander Nasmyth, the Glasgow Boys, and internationally renowned works such as Velázquez’s 'An Old Woman Cooking Eggs'. Cross over to the Old Town. Stroll along its medieval cobbled lanes and discover its most important sites, including Greyfriars Graveyard, Grassmarket, and Victoria Street. Delve into the history of Edinburgh Castle, and recall the fascinating stories of kings, queens, battles and sieges.
