Let's Explore Edinburgh Old Town, Paperback / softback Book

Let's Explore Edinburgh Old Town Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Cinders McLeod

Part of the Let's Explore series

Paperback / softback


The Old Town of Edinburgh has everything. At the highest point is a huge castle. At the foot of the hill there's a palace. Between them are secret gardens, a museum full of toys, a statue of the world famous Greyfriars Bobby, and much more besides.

There were murders here too (think of Burke and Hare).

There's mystery - is preacher John Knox really buried under parking space 44? And then there are the ghosts of Mary King's Close. You can find out about all this and more in this guide.

Read the tales of the Old Town, check out the short quizzes and the Twenty Questions page (all the answers are given), and you'll have plenty to see and do.
