Eat walk Edinburgh offer two Food walking tours. One explores Edinburgh's Old & New towns and the other the lower half of the Royal Mile called the Cannongate. On each of these tours you will visit unusual/hidden restaurants, bars and shops, taste dishes specially prepared for you. Sample individually selected drinks (beers, wine and whisky), talk to the chefs/owners and discover the history behind the properties. The Old & new town tour (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with two wine tastings and a single cask malt whisky tasting ensuring you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening. The Cannongate tour (10am-1pm) enjoys six stops including a Bloody Mary cocktail and breakfast canapes to get the tour off and running. By the end there will be no need for lunch. The Old & New town tour was recommended in BBC Good Food Magazine as a "Don't miss" thing to do in Edinburgh. Delicious magazine also has it down as a must do.

We had a lovely personal tour around Canongate with Julie who really knew her stuff. It was just the four of us plus baby Daphney on the tour and right from enquiring to booking and the eat walk tour itself we felt so looked after. I was worried that we might need lunch as the tour started at 10 and... More

I really enjoyed this tour. They did a great job of accommodating my family with a small child. I loved that we got to stop at the Scottish maul whisky society. That was the highlight of the tour for me. It was s solid mix of good food and great drinks.

Great day out and the food was delicious. We had the most terrible weather but there is not much you can do about that and the food and drink more than made up for it. Fantastic way to see a city and I will be booking similar tours, if possible, whenever I go to a new place.

Julie was an excellent tour guide! She was so nice and very informative, and we really enjoyed getting to try the haggis, which we'd been too scared to order at the restaurants.

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
