Travel Guide

A Victorian Guide to the city of Edinburgh

Salisbury Crags – Someone is strangled on the highest point of Salisbury Crags.  If you go in real life, it does take your breath away although not in the same way thank goodness

Holyrood Palace – The palace is just as beautiful now as it was then and for a real feel of the period both in the book and before, it’s well worth a visit

This is a real tour around the beauty of the city in Victorian times of course so take your wellies as the cobbled streets are thick with mud and mind out for the horses and carriages. The beautiful  of Edinburgh is that much of it particularly around Parliament Square and the Royal Mile is exactly how it would have looked at the time of the novel.

The world of the theatre comes to life:

The Pleasance Theatre – one of the theatres highlighted in the book and still an iconic place to visit particularly during Edinburgh festival!
