Secret Edinburgh: A Curious Tour of the New Town with Edinburgh World Heritage

Thursday 28 July, 5.45pm

Jul 28, 2016

Following the success of our surprisingly sunny walking tour of the Old Town last month, we are delighted to invite you to join us for ‘Secret Edinburgh’- the New Town edition!

On Thursday 28th July, you can explore more secret sites, hidden mysteries and curious corners of our wonderful city. Though typified by symmetry and order, even amongst the Georgian grandeur of the New Town there are plenty of surprises and secrets to be discovered. We are delighted that Secret Edinburgh author Hannah Robinson will once again be joining us for our event- you may even be fortunate enough to have Hannah as your very own tour guide!

Meeting outside West Register House in Charlotte Square at 5.45pm, you will be assigned a tour guide from the Edinburgh World Heritage team to guide you as you explore the secrets of the New Town. Your tour will last for approximately one hour, after which all groups will reconvene at the beautiful showrooms of Bonhams on Queen Street where the evening will conclude with a drinks reception.

This event is free to Edinburgh World Heritage members, but we do request that you register your attendance at the Eventbrite page.

The event is also open to non-members, who will likewise need to register their attendance via Eventbrite. In addition, we ask that all non-members pay £5.00 per person on the door to help cover the costs.

Please do let us know in advance if you have any access requirements which we should take into consideration before assigning you to a tour group.
