If you want to experience a lively and interesting tour of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile at your own pace at any time of day, then Real History Talks is the tour for you.
We provide you with a great way to see the city of Edinburgh without being tied down to tour times and dates.
Produced by radio professionals, Real History Talks are bristling with life, imagination and music. They give a real sense of stepping back in time. Listen to a sample for yourself by clicking on the star to the right.
This tour guides you from the historic Edinburgh Castle, through murder, mystery, scandal and romance all the way down to Holyrood Palace. The tour has several points of additional information, where you can make the choice to keep listening for more tales of Edinburgh’s murky past, or else skip on to the next track to keep the tour a bit more compact.
The benefit of having a tour you can pause at any point is obvious. Fancy another look down that interesting alleyway? Seen an interesting souvenir shop? Need to recharge with a nice cup of tea and a scone? Not a problem! Just pause the tour and pick up again where you left off! You can even do the tour over several days if you want to spread the fun out!
