Discover a little-known side of Edinburgh's Old Town: behind the historic buildings, find the surprising number of little gardens and green nooks and crannies, all with a story to tell. You'll hear about grand gardens of the past, enjoy productive community gardens (created by today's residents), and take a breather in a beautiful space laid out and planted as a 17th-century Scots town garden. Early booking is essential for this very popular tour. An easy walk of about one mile (some steps and cobbled surfaces). Tour finishes in Canongate.
