Edinburgh's Flodden Wall

Jacobite Edinburgh - a virtual tour

Discover what life was like in Edinburgh's Old Town in the late summer of 1745, one of the most evocative times in our city's history!

Your private virtual tour of Edinburgh

Explore the lives of Edinburgh’s forgotten Victorian poor with a live guide on this interactive virtual tour of Edinburgh.

Our five-star rated Slums of Victorian Edinburgh tour has now been taken online. Discover the people, places and events which have been almost erased from Edinburgh’s history as we take you on an interactive ‘virtual tour’ of the Victorian Old Town!

We’ve used our extensive archive, which included 360-degree images. These let your guide control the image and ‘look around’ just as if we were actually in Edinburgh. In addition, he’ll share archive images that give you a ‘then and now’ idea of how the Victorian Old Town once looked. Where possible, Robert can even tailor aspects of the tour to best suit the group's interests.  

We are currently only offering this experience as a private virtual tour. Please email us if you are interested in a private tour at a time that suits you.
