THE NEW TOWN'S 250TH BIRTHDAY WALKING TOUR

Sun 30 Apr & 7 May

£8.00

Event Information Buy Tickets

2017 is the 250th anniversary of the adoption of James Craig's plan for an 'élite suburb' which would eventually separate Edinburgh into its 'Old' and 'New' Towns. To celebrate, Greenyonder Tours has collected stories of people who have made the New Town - from the architects and builders, to servants, high heid yins, gardeners and radical campaigners. Hear the story of 250 years of Georgian Edinburgh, with its highs and lows seen from some unusual angles.

 

Tickets for the April 30th tour will now only be available from the guide on the day.

A booking fee of £1 is charged per transaction for online and phone bookings. No booking fee is applied to tickets purchased in person from the Scottish Storytelling Centre Box Office.
