Step back in time and learn all about the famous characters and features of Edinburgh’s Grassmarket and Old Town with this children’s adaptation of the Historic Trail, brand new for 2017.
This free walking tour around Edinburgh’s oldest and most historic part of the city takes only one hour to complete – and you can start and finish at any one of the 11 hotspots on the trail.
Pick up your FREE MAP, CRAYONS AND EARPHONES in one of the Grassmarket businesses and tune in to the audio guide on your mobile or tablet and listen to tales of time gone by. Famous characters including Burke and Hare, ‘Half-Hangit’ Maggie and the Wizard of West Bow all come to life with details of their gruesome activities.
Suitable for children aged six and over this fun day out will keep little minds intrigued and informed about what life was like hundreds of years ago.
Why not make a day of it? You can stop and shop in one of the many unique boutiques, or find a bite to eat at one of the Greater Grassmarket’s many cafes and restaurants.
School and holiday club groups welcome.
No booking required, just turn up and enjoy!
Coming 24th June 2017!
