Where you'll be

We begin at the Duke of Wellington Statue - right across from the Balmoral Hotel with a stunning view of Edinburgh castle. We visit Greyfriars Kirkyard, haunted by the Mackenzie Poltergiest. We explore the gothic architecture around the city and end our tour on the aptly named ‘World’s End’ which is where the old meets the new.
