About Pied Piper Walking Tours - Edinburgh Georgian New Town

Did you know that Sherlock Holmes began life on Leith Walk?

Or that Mendelssohn composed his Scottish Symphony during his stay in our Georgian New Town?

Or which Hollywood blockbuster was filmed on Albany Street?

Did you know that the national anthem of Iceland was composed near Broughton Street?

Or that Chopin's had an infamous love affair with an Edinburgh lass?

Join us on a 30 minute gentle walking tour of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town as we explore Edinburgh's illustrious music, literary and film history - from classical composers to 'Eurovision' and the iconic Scottish folk band 'The Corries.'

This is a unique and creative walking tour led by our passionate local historian Matthew Shiel and our talented resident 'Pied Piper,' Dr Jake Spence (PhD, University of Edinburgh) who will illustrate and accompany our journey with his enchanting fiddle playing - live!

Meet at The Orchard Bar & Restaurant, 1 Howard Place, Edinburgh EH3 5JP
