The Historic Port of Leith

Tour Fee
2 hrs
Tour Description
Edinburgh's undiscovered gem is The Port of Leith. Over the course of one to two hours we will meet outside at 1 Tower Place, Leith and you shall be guided through the historic streets and alleys of Leith discovering many of it's old tales. On this tour you'll hear about seafaring history invasions, the 1913 Leith Dockers Strike, wine, whisky and ale, Leith's very own racehorse course and street art. This is an area that boasts links with two world renowned artists. Our stops will cover all these subjects. It's also worth knowing that the area of Leith we cover is a much quieter area than The Old Town of Edinburgh. So if you feel you've had enough of the business of central Edinburgh come down to Leith.
Special Considerations
The Port of Leith is not in central Edinburgh and requires a bus to get there. I would recommend Lothian bus numbers 16, 22 or 35 to get to the starting point of 1 Tower Place, Leith Edinburgh. EH6 7BZ. Also, some of the route is on cobbled, uneven surfaces and creates a challenge to anyone in a wheelchair. No food or drink is included so money should be brought for any refreshments. The price for each adult is £9 per adult.
