What you'll do

A unique musical journey through the rich history of Edinburgh's old town. Discover an Edinburgh vibrant with life, music and the occasional murder. Graeme E Pearson is a native of Edinburgh. He will perform live traditional and modern songs relating to real events and characters that shaped The Royal Mile. The tour begins and ends outside the Fringe Office on the Royal Mile. Graeme will meet you there. He's the tall guy with the tartan troosers and Balmoral hat. Everything is in and around The Royal Mile in Edinburgh's Old Town. We will walk in a loop up towards Edinburgh Castle and return back in at least 1 hour 15 minutes but sometimes longer, and we have the option of stopping off at the pub for a quick one (price of the drink not included). After 8 pm under 18s are not allowed in pubs in Scotland. We finish where we begin.
