The Royal Mile - From Huts to High Rise

This Edinburgh walking tour covers the most famous street in the city. Start at the foot of the Edinburgh Castle Esplanade down to the Tron, on the junction with the Bridges for a brief introduction to how Edinburgh's Royal Mile has developed from timbered medieval buildings to the complex street of today.

Follow Angus who will tell you about many of the Mile's famous closes that offer, a quiet retreat from the busy main street. Get a glimpse into the layers of language underlying the present names of many buildings and areas.

Continually altered, repaired, adapted and sometimes restored, the Royal Mile is a living witness to Scottish history since the Middle Ages.

The tour may run an extra five or ten minutes due to crowds or traffic.
