During the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe (4th to 28th August), we offer twice-daily free walking tours of the Royal Mile the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town.

Tours leave from in front of the City Chambers in the Royal Mile (see our Contact Us page for directions). There are no formalities. Just turn up at one of the times shown below.

Remember: there is no charge of any kind for tours from the 4th to 28th August 2017, provided you join the tour at the City Chambers at one of the times noted above.

If you prefer to take a tour at another time, or outside the Festival period, talk to us about a custom tour for your family or group.
