Event description

Description

Printing spread slowly through Scotland and by the middle of the nineteenth century had become one of its most significant industries, with Edinburgh as a centre for book printing.

The guided walk will visit some of the sites associated with the printing and publishing industries in Edinburgh's New Town, highlighting some of the traces left by the industry's 500 year history.

As is it the 250th anniversary of the New Town we will be pointing out New Town buildings between Queen Street and Princes Street, that were used for printing and allied trades and highlighting the importance of the printing industry.
