About
Edinburgh is a treasure trove of historical delights. From old prisons which are the subject of local legends to the stunning architecture of St Giles’ Cathedral, there is plenty to see. Explore the city with a local storyteller and hear the tales that bring the city to life. Start this history evening experience at the Mercat Cross. With a turbulent past, your friendly local will fill you in on all the former uses of this spot, from public executions to a place of trade to announcements from London. Follow your host to Edinburgh’s parliament square and visit the burial site of one of the city’s most famous former residents. Then swing by the must-see cathedral and take in this architectural gem lit up in all its glory. Head up to Edinburgh Castle which is even more spectacular when it is lit up in the evening. Then visit a historic market before stopping by one of the most haunted graveyards in Scotland, which is said to have inspired the Harry Potter series.
