What to expect

Discover Edinburgh’s incredible arts and cultural scene with a local Edinburgh host who is passionate about their city’s creativity.

No trip to Edinburgh would not be complete without at least testing its arty waters. That could mean visiting contemporary art galleries, like the Ingleby Gallery, which is housed in a renovated industrial building overlooking Waverley train station, or you could hit the streets of Leith and discover its renowned street art scene.

You may want to head over to Old Town, and you could explore the Scottish Storytelling Centre, where you can immerse yourself in all things literature. There are even poems inscribed into the pavements in this city - ask your host to take you to see one of two of these hidden gems, which most people walk straight over.

Speaking of literature, Edinburgh is a treat for book lovers. Your host can show you the hidden haunts of writers past and present, like the cafe where writer J.K. Rowling sat and wrote, then take you to those quirky bookshops that only a fellow literature lover would know. Those independent little shops like Golden Hare Books, which happens to host regular literary events.

This brings us to Edinburgh's lively theatre scene. How about ditching the crowds and heading to the Bedlam Theatre? This theatre, housed in a former church, is unique as it’s run entirely by students!
