History Walks

Sin in the City - Valentines Special

About this tour

Drinking dens. Brothels. Riotous nudity. How are you spending Valentine's Day this year? If you're sick of hearts, roses and all things pink and fluffy we've got just the remedy. Join us for an evening of sordid stories and hearty laughs as we share the risqué tales of Edinburgh's most rampant residents...

On this special edition walking tour you’ll discover the seedier side of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Fancy hearing about the time Mary Queen of Scots appeared, flushed and topless, at a window? Or admiring the trees that James Boswell climbed for the rough pleasure of the bark? We'll explore the lanes that hid Edinburgh's darker establishments – and the furious spouses who discovered treachery there.

For the last 30 minutes we’ll curl up in the cosy Megget’s Cellar for candlelit storytelling and a complimentary glass of fizz. It’s the perfect Galentines or alternative Valentines night out.
