The New Town Tour

A stand alone or a continuation of the Old Town tour

This 3 hour tour encapsulates the grandeur and splendour of 18th century Georgian Edinburgh including Calton Hill, Princes Street, Princes Street Gardens, the National Galleries at the Mound, George Street and Charlotte Square, and includes an overview of the city in the ‘Enlightenment’ and ‘Romantic’ periods, periods that saw such illustrious New Town residents as Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and David Hume.

A fitting culmination of this tour can be a drink at a new town pub such as Rebus’ Oxford Bar, the Café Royal with its marble floor, brass foot-rails and Royal Doulton tiled murals, or the Guildford Arms with its respectable selection of real ales (or if you prefer we can point you in the direction of a fine restaurant).
