This Way to Edinburgh!


“Ahm away up town for some messages, d’ye want tae chum me?”

Did you know Edinburgh began as a fort back in the Middle Ages? Do you know whose pickled skin became a sought-after souvenir? Why it’s ‘alright’ to spit on the high street?

These are just a few of the exciting facts we will learn about the city! This workshop explores the capital’s exciting history, allowing pupils to plot a path to the past as we visit the city’s favourite haunts and jaunts! Climb up to the castle for the tales of reckless raids and then we’ll hit the high street for a whole host of historical horrors.

"I can't speak highly enough of the day's experience. Every child who took part loved every minute of it and it was brilliant to watch them grow in confidence as the day progressed. Your Director was fantastic. She dealt with all of the kids with great confidence and skill-fully included a number of children from our specialist Language & Communication Resource. Her enthusiasm was completely infectious and the kids were hooked early on. The final share back was really impressive and I think I can safely say that I'm not the only person in the room who shed a wee tear. I have already recommended your company to other local schools.
