Things to do Dean Village & Princess St Gardens Free Tour

The Free Tour to the Dean Village neighborhood and the Water of Leith river begins with incredible views of the New Town. Our guide will give a detailed introduction to help us put all the information offered on our tour in a historical context. We will thus understand how this monumental architectural complex was founded.

Our tour will take us through the mythical Princes Street Gardens, where we will know first-hand its peculiar orography and its monuments.

Then we will take a tour through the streets of marked Georgian style of the New Town and Charlotte Square until we reach our goal, Dean Village. This small mill town from the 12th century will make you believe that you are in a fairy tale. A magical corner that will welcome us with the sound of the waters that flow down the Water of Leith river. If we are lucky, we may see the odd otter.

Prepare your camera!

After visiting the town and its old bridge, where we can add to our Instagram account by taking a photograph, we will begin our return to the city. We can enjoy a pleasant walk through one of the most incomparable natural settings in Edinburgh. Along the way, we can admire its mills, many of them still standing, and its medicinal wells, such as San Bernardo, delicately decorated.

Finally, we will visit the Stockbridge neighborhood, where we will be able to enjoy its cafes, its gourmet shops and its characteristic "Charities"; as well as some of the most photographed streets in the city.

At the end of our tour we will find a bus stop right next to it for those who do not want to walk back to the center. Our recommendation is that you return on foot through the New Town and take advantage of the walk to immerse yourself in the picturesque atmosphere of its streets. You can also ask the guide what his recommendations are if you need to "recharge your batteries" in a cafeteria.

Only with Compass Free Tours do you know first-hand the jewels that the city hides. Don't hesitate, look for the green umbrella!
