Edinburgh's Queer History

2 Hours From £15 GBP per person

Embark on the most fabulous of journeys and discover Edinburgh's rich queer history straight (pun intended) from the early mediaeval era to present day and looking forward. Learn about queer royalty, poets, doctors, sex workers, activists, drag queens and kings, football players and more...there's even a spy! Through these stories and more we'll travel together through history and give life to the history of queer rights and love right up to the present.

Through this tour, you will discover Edinburgh like never before- through rainbow goggles with our guide Dakota, a non-binary queer person with a passion for history and activism.

Tour Highlights

Starting on Bristo Square, and finishing on Carlton Hill, the tour covers the queer history and present of Edinburgh and Scotland. It features the stories of historical poets, doctors, priests and more!
