Edinburgh Poetry Tours: walks with poems in the Old Town


“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.”*

Walking tours weaving in and out of the Old Town’s closes, gardens and graveyards, and including poems and prose by Robert Burns, Dorothy Wordsworth, Victor Hugo, Robert Louis Stevenson, the great Anon and many others.

Walks are led by Ken Cockburn who has undertaken 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.
