Edinburgh New Town: A Comprehensive Guide

Rate this book
There are several books about Edinburgh's world-renowned New Town, so why buy this particular one? The reason is, it covers everything you need to know: the elegant streets and squares as well as the many lesser-known lanes running off that people often miss, with a handy rating guide to the most interesting ones. It contains all the significant buildings and monuments, noted pubs, restaurants, and visitor attractions. It recounts the Neoclassical New Town's distinguished history, including many of its most fascinating characters. Written by an award-winning novelist who has spent more than 20 years working in the city as a tour guide, and illustrated throughout in full color, this book is all you'll need to get the most out of your visit to the New Town.
