Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour

download (2)

Take a tour through pubs which writers like Roberts Burns and William Wordsworth frequented, and delve into stories of their inspiration, sexual intrigue, drinking, and debauchery. The tour starts off at the Beehive Inn, located in the Old Town, where people can check in or buy tickets and then head upstairs with a drink or two.

Throughout the journey, the guides act out a battle of wits: one provides the rough, dark, and drunken side of writers and their processes while the other lays out historical facts and poems.

The two jest and banter with each other to give a lively tour; one which gives history from all angles and brings the audience into the dark, yet inspirational times of writers.

Make sure to bring a light jacket for it gets a bit chilly at night and be ready to listen to tales of history under the dim lamps and soot stained buildings from the Old Town to the New Town.
