Private Tour of Edinburgh New Town Architecture

Private Tour of Edinburgh New Town Architecture

star-4.5

The ultimate tour for the admirers of scholarly classical beauty. With your architect-guide, soak in the Scottish Enlightenment spirit on a walk through "a model city" - the largest Georgian planned town development in the world.  For an exclusive insight into the chic Georgian lifestyle, we will enter a private park - available only with us, or if your aunt lives on Queen street! We will soak in the neoclassical ornaments under the starlit dome of the most impressive banking hall in Europe. Then find one of the last remaining original mews that served the grand townhouses in the Georgian era. New Town's architectural status is unique in the world in terms of its size, monumentality and degree of preservation. While walking its ordered, symmetrical grid of streets lined with Neoclassical tenements (yes, tenements!) we will learn the purpose of the sunken basements and why Edinburgh won't clean its blackened sandstone facades!
