體驗簡介

Highlight: exclusive entrance to the private Queen Street Gardens.

On your walk with an architect-guide, connect the dots on what you know about the largest Georgian planned town development in the world:
• What guided the designers of the New Town?
• How much were the New Towners’ fortunes connected to slavery?
• Why so much of the now listed Georgian New Town was demolished?
• Why do even modern property developers see the New Town as the model of a “sustainable” city?

Through the masterplan drawn by the young James Craig and buildings by celebrated British architects such as Robert Adam, we will unfold the cultural context of Scottish Enlightenment, as well as the economic and political influence of the Union.

While walking its ordered, symmetrical grid of streets lined with Neoclassical tenements (yes, tenements!) we will learn the purpose of the New Town’s sunken basements and underground vaults. Finally, you will grasp the origins of typical Georgian details as your guide introduces fanlights, elegant ironwork of the original New Town street lights, and a palette of sandstone finishes.

For an exclusive insight into the chic Georgian lifestyle, you will enter a private park - available only with us - or if your aunt lives on Queen street!

Olga was an amazing guide with in depth knowledge about the city. She was very patient to explain more about details when I asked questions, and is a good storyteller. I learned lots of new things about architecture today than ever and it was such an unique way of exploring in town. Checking out the private garden was amazing. I will definitely sign up for her other tours when I visit Edinburgh again! Lastly, she gave great recommendations for food and drinks that I could go to after the tour :)

The 5 hour achitectural tour with Olga was a delight. Having already visited Edinburgh in the past and done the standard touristy stuff, I was looking for a more in depth experience and wasn't disappointed. Olga is very knowledgeable and engages tour participants in discussions. It was great learning more about the background, inspirations and stories behind those beautiful buildings.

Excursion with Olga was very interesting. Olga told us a lot about architecture of Edinburgh, some features of old buildings. We learned practically a few architecture's styles. Olga showed us beautiful gardens of New Town, and secret places of Old Town. So, this event is strongly recomended.

Olga was friendly, informed, and highly engaging with the information she presented. She explained the architectural features of the different areas of Edinburgh and talked about how the areas were planned. I learnt great deal about the architectural details and history of the area. And afternoon tea in the gorgeous rooms of the Dome was a treat!
