We will take you through the highs and lows of Edinburgh’s world renowned medical history.
Discover the intrigues, rivalries and dedication to the cause as our guide leads you through the sites where anatomists, surgeons and physicians worked, operated and squabbled in the quest for medical advancement.
Drawn from the archives at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh you will hear little known accounts of iconic writers, chloroform tea parties, pioneering women, grave robbing and of course Britain’s first serial killers the infamous Burke and Hare. Hear tales of old Edinburgh, disease, dissection and curious methods of treatment.
Meeting Point: Please arrive in good time for your tour. Your guide will meet you at the entrance to Surgeons Hall Museums (in front of the hand sculpture).
When accessing the museum you must wear a face mask (unless medically exempt from doing so.) Face masks are not mandatory during the tour but are recommended.
Please note that this is an outdoor walking tour that runs throughout the year so please dress accordingly.
Not all the sites we visit are dog friendly and therefore we admit assistance dogs only.
