Description

In celebration of 250th Birthday of New Town, Cobble Tales will lead a guided two hour tour for the Doors Open Days 2017.

During the walk through rational, ordered, symmetrical grid of streets of extravagant neoclassical townhouses and private parks, you will learn the history and principles behind the masterplan of the New Town, understand the building materials that describe Georgian Edinburgh, and discuss architectural details harking back to the Ancient Greece and Rome.

The tour will finish in Charlotte Square.
