Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits: The Story of the Capital’s Music

About Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits: The Story of the Capital’s Music

Explore the past and present music hotspots of Edinburgh's Old Town with this 90 minute guided walking tour.

Edinburgh Music Tours tell all the tall tales from the People’s Festival Ceilidh to Roller mania and beyond. Our tours trace the people, venues, gigs and stories that made Edinburgh’s music.

From folk music hubs like Sandy Bells and The Royal Oak to grassroots rock venues such as Sneaky Pete's and Bannerman's, the tours cover folk to funk, pop to punk, past to present and even a little classical.

For our 2019 season, we’ll be ending each tour in one of Edinburgh’s best-loved folk bars.

Led by experienced music professionals, the walks are based around stories of the artists who have stayed, played and made music in Edinburgh.

Carefully researched, the tours are packed with fun anecdotes and plenty of tall tales that illustrate the diversity of the artists who have performed in the Scottish capital.

Designed to appeal to both dedicated music fans and visitors who simply want to see Edinburgh in a new way, the artists covered range from home-grown musical curiosities to chart-topping bands that have had global success.

From the team behind the highly successful Glasgow Music City Tours – five stars on TripAdvisor!
