Edinburgh Fringe Frolics!

For the second year running The Real Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour was truly honoured to take part in the world’s biggest and best arts festival – the Edinburgh Fringe!

As the Scottish capital buzzed with creativity and played host to some of the world’s most talented and original performers throughout a breathless and magical August, we offered daily morning tours for the entire 25 days of the Fringe run, showing over 250 guests from four different continents the forgotten places where the Sherlock Holmes legend truly began.
Fans young and old, human and canine joined the real Sherlock on a special 90 minute trip back #intotheunknown world of Victorian Edinburgh, following in the footsteps of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and exploring the origins of the science of deduction.
A huge THANK YOU to every single person who joined us and made Fringe 2018 a truly unforgettable one!


Not Sure If The Tour Is For You? The Real Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour has enjoyed significant press coverage over the past few months – including in The Scotsman and The Times (Scotland).
