Each walking tour weaves in and out of the Old Town’s closes, gardens and graveyards, and includes poems and prose by authors including Robert Burns, Dorothy Wordsworth, Victor Hugo, Robert Louis Stevenson and the great Anon.

“An excellent tour for both the historian and the poetry lover: Ken is a brilliant guide and his love for the poems shines out and illuminates them for us.”*

Ken Cockburn has led poetry walks for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Scottish Storytelling Festival, for organisations including Edinburgh College of Art, Society of Authors in Scotland and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and for private groups
