We enjoyed getting an extra dose of literary, film and television trivia along with a wonderful guided tour of the historic buildings and locations in old Edinburgh. A must for history geeks, book lovers and Doctor Who fans!
The filiming locations tour was not normal experience at Edinburgh. I can't say simply this is the filiming tour I think I can say "the filiming tour with historical seance of Scottland." The guild has deeply knowledge about Scotland what I never known. I hope...More

Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I am very looking forward to seeing you again!
The tour around places connected with Scottish writers and film locations was most amusing and entertaining rather than usual boring tours of historical places. We had such fun not only with the tour guide but also great banter between the people on a tour. The...More
I'd highly recommend this tour for someone who loves movies and literature and is looking for something a bit more offbeat than the standard tartan tat type tour. I know Edinburgh well but still got to see fascinating and beautiful parts of the city that...More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
