See Edinburgh like never before with Invisible Cities, the award-winning social enterprise that trains people who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city.
You will meet Paul our guide, on the grassmarket, at the Best Selfie Spot, to find out about the history of the square. Go up Candlemaker row, and learn about fellow social enterprises in the old town. We will make a stop at Greyfriars cemetary to hear about body snatchers (and who the first ones were!) then go down the Historical Royal Mile.
The tour will end at the Scottish Parliament.
Sales from the tour will support the work Invisible Cities does in their local community, supporting people who have experienced homelessness.
