Travelling Shakespeare

A walking tour of the beautiful city of Edinburgh with some Shakespearean surprises on the way!

EUSC are delighted to announce the rescheduled event of the year, and the first of its kind in Edinburgh - Travelling Shakespeare!

There are three walks per day, leaving every half hour between 2-4pm on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th April. Please buy your tickets for the group you wish to attend. There is a limit of 20 people per group. You may not attend a walk slot that does not match your ticket purchase. No late arrivals are allowed to catch up to the previous walk or wait until the next for insurance reasons. Please direct any ticket issues to

The time slots are: Sat 19th - 2:00, 2:30, 3:00 Sun 20th - 2:00, 2:30, 3:00

Ticket prices: Full Price £10 Concession £8 Student £5

Please arrive to the square outside St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile ten minutes before your slot start time. All instructions and walking guides will be provided on arrival. Please note the entirety of the tour is outside with limited opportunity to take shelter; we are expecting reasonable weather but do make sure you are appropriately dresses and have decent footwear. The entire walk will take approximately 90 minutes.

Unfortunately, some parts of the event do require climbing and descending stairs, so we do not recommend attending if you have trouble walking long distances or covering these more difficult terrains.

To keep the route secret, we cannot say explicitly where the walk will finish, however it will not be too far from St Giles and stays relatively central.

We look forward to sharing this new and exciting event with you; it truly displays the wealth of talent of the Edinburgh theatre scene, performing some of Shakespeare’s best works.
