Following the incredible success of the London’s Hidden Walks series, Metro are pleased to announce that we have extended our reach beyond London to another great and ancient city – Edinburgh!
People love walking the streets and every street tells a story...With 14 illustrated walks and over 400 full-colour photographs Edinburgh's Hidden Walks is packed with interesting details about the Scottish capital's history. Edinburgh has the highest concentration of listed buildings anywhere in the UK and was the birthplace of the Scottish Enlightenment –inspiring it’s moniker as the ‘Athens of the North’.
From grand Georgian squares, to winding ‘wynds’, follow in the footsteps of authors and statesmen, murderers and revolutionaries and discover contemporary Edinburgh's and its colourful history.Detailed maps illustrate each walk and there is a useful list of local attractions (museums, galleries, historical houses) and details of the best cafés and pubs.
