History Walks

A Royal Mile Special: Chinese New Year

About this tour

The pig is known for being hard-working, focussed, trusting and social; and we have plenty of those characters in Scotland’s history.

The personality of the pig is seen throughout the history of Edinburgh in ways and places you may not know. On this walking tour we'll explore the giants of Edinburgh's past and their qualities that make them suited for this Year of the Pig.

You may even hear a story or two about the creatures themselves. Join us on this trot around the city to discover its secrets.
