Breathes there a man,
with soul so dead,
who never to himself
“This is my own.
My native land”.
First launched as a pilot in 2009 and winner of a TIDA Award, the Tourism Innovation Development Award, this project was the first literary tour of its kind on wheels in Edinburgh!
Encompassing the spectrum of literary heritage and the work of current contemporary writers, professional actors provide a dramatised narrative commentary in an entertaining Bus Tour around Edinburgh.
Set against Edinburgh’s unique literary landscape, education and cultural tourism prove themselves to be excellent bedfellows.
Edinburgh City of Literature is a world of literary heritage waiting to be unveiled. Click on the image below to see to full route map.
