• Hetty's History Walks

    be inspired by Edinburgh's rich history with each step you take.

  • Hetty's History Walks offer guided walking tours of Edinburgh from a different perspective. Together we'll discover its social and cultural history and urban development. Our tours uncover the history of the city itself, not just its famous events and notorious characters.

     

    With its dramatic natural landscape, plentiful green-spaces and diverse mix of architecture Edinburgh is the perfect city to explore on foot. Researched and led by a local history lover this is Edinburgh's past with no ghosts, no Greyfriar's Bobby and no theatrics because Edinburgh is fantastical enough without embellishment.

     

    For visitors our tours are a great way to familiarise yourself with the city's layout while learning about its history. Especially if you want to scratch deeper than Edinburgh's 'picture perfect' Instagram image and typical 'tourist tours'. Edinburgh residents get to dig about in their own back-yard and discover some of the lesser-known aspects of the city's development over the centuries.

     

    Focusing on Edinburgh's 'everyday history', rather than it's 'exceptional history', our tours uncover some of the many 'how's and why's' behind the city's growth from its tiny, medieval beginnings into the vibrant, cultural capital we see today.
