Product description

'The top of the Waverley Steps, by the way, has the reputation of being one of the windiest corners in Britain, especially when the wind blows from the south west quarter. For the safeguarding of pedestrians on stormy days a stalwart constable and a stout rope railing are specially called into service'. With seven extended walking tours of the city (that you can follow to this day) this unique guide to Edinburgh opens a window onto a by-gone age. With sections on the Castle, all major monuments, churches and museums it offers more historical detail than most modern tour guides. Alongside this are echoes of a simpler, slower age - the 36 hour journey from London to Edinburgh by boat is described as a 'short sea trip'. The perfect gift for anyone that loves the, 'most picaresque and beautiful city of the British Isles'. The first selection of eight titles includes: London, Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and North Cornwall. Each title has a newly-written introduction from a locally-known author.
