Vad du kommer att göra

We explore the Southside, which is a beautiful part of the city (away from the tourist centre), with lots of greenery and stunning architecture. There, we uncover unbelievable true stories; from grave robbers, to the real-life Sherlock Holmes, surgeries gone wrong, plague doctors, suffragettes, chloroform parties, 18th century sexologists and much, much more... Whether you’re a doctor, a surgeon or you’re just a bit sick in the head and you like to hear lots of gory, disgusting things, then you will absolutely love this Marvellous Medical Tour! It will make you gasp, it will make you laugh, it will probably make you throw up in your mouth a little bit... What’s not to love?

Dina värdar

Hello! We’re Euan and Ryan, two born-and-bred locals, who are very passionate about our beautiful city and its history. Euan studied history and Ryan nursing, so together we have medical history covered! We’ve also been giving historical walking tours of our hometown for a number of years, in both the Old and New Towns, and we know all the nooks and crannies of Auld Reekie! You might be surprised to know that Edinburgh was once the centre of medicine throughout the English-speaking world! So, join us on this Marvellous Medical Tour, as we get under the skin, and dissect the fascinating, gruesome, and, at times, hilarious medical history of this city... After all, laughter is the best medicine!

Var ni kommer att vara

Starting at Greyfriars Kirkyard, we'll be venturing into the Southside, with many magnificent examples of beautiful Victorian architecture, as well as lots of green parks and gardens. We'll see the house where Arthur Conan Doyle lived while he was inspired to write Sherlock Holmes, as well as the place where Darwin studied in Edinburgh, not to mention the surgeries where trailblazers of science transformed the world of medicine.

Fler tips

I'll be at the meeting point early, awkwardly eyeballing strangers, so you'll know it's me! The tour covers about a mile, but it's very flat (only a few steps). We'll also finish where we started.
