Edinburgh Afternoon Tea
Tea consumption increased dramatically during the early nineteenth century and it is around this time that Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford, is said to have complained of having that ‘sinking feeling’ during the late afternoon. The solution for the Duchess was a pot of tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon. Later friends were invited to join her and this summer practice proved so popular that the Duchess sent cards to her friends asking them to join her for ‘Afternoon Tea’. Other society hostesses quickly picked up on the idea and the practice became respectable enough to move it into the drawing room. Before long fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
Walking Tours of Edinburgh
Ghost & Ghouls Tour
Centuries of murder, torture, hangings and plague have left a haunting legacy on the city of Edinburgh. This tour will take clients on a journey around the eerie old buildings and narrow closes of the Old Town. Let the cloaked guide lead you down into the Vaults beneath the South Bridge and hear stories of those who once occupied these dark chambers and perhaps still do…
Duration 1hr 15 minutes.
Secrets of the Royal Mile
The best way to explore Edinburgh is to follow your feet. Where the buses can’t take you, and the guide books don’t show you is where our city’s stories lie – the closes, wynds, courtyards and homes of Old Edinburgh. We’ll visit the sites that are tucked away to see the secrets and tell the tales. We’ll help unlock our fascinating past – the culture, crime, politics and people of Scotland’s capital.
Duration 1hr 30 minutes.
