About West End Stories Walking Tours

A new venture by the same team that brought you the highly acclaimed Edinburgh’s Georgian Shadows Walking Tours in 2017 and Edinburgh’s Curious Curiosities in 2018.

The Scottish Tourist Guides Association Edinburgh and SE Scotland Branch, in collaboration with Edinburgh World Heritage, is excited to offer 90-minute walking tours in Edinburgh’s quieter, less-well known streets to the north and west of Charlotte Square. Discover our rich heritage and history through the lives of fascinating citizens who influenced the way we live today.

Tours available until to Sunday 13th September (not Mondays or Tuesday).

Meet your guide next to West Register House, 17 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, EH2 4DJ.

Feedback from our guests has already been excellent.

£1 from every ticket sold will be donated to Edinburgh World Heritage to support its value conservation work in the city.

Small, socially-distanced groups of maximum 8 people or 4 households, plus your guide.
