Event description
Join us on Wednesday 12th June for an evening walking tour of the finest monuments on and around the Royal Mile.
The city’s monuments and public works of art mark Edinburgh out as a great capital city and are one of the reasons for our UNESCO World Heritage inscription. To celebrate the publication of art historian Professor Ray McKenzie’s new comprehensive reference guide, Public Sculpture of Edinburgh, you are invited to a specially curated tour of the Old Town’s most important sculptures. 
The tour will provide fascinating details and insight into some of Edinburgh’s most important public works of art including Charles II in Parliament Square, Alexander and Bucephalus at City Chambers and Everyman on East Market Street.
The evening will be rounded off with a drinks reception in the courtyard of Edinburgh World Heritage’s 17th century home, Acheson House. 
We would be delighted if you could join us for this tour. There is limited capacity, so book now to avoid disappointment. 
Date: Wednesday 12 June 2019
Time: 6pm – 8pm
Meeting point: Castle Esplanade
To note: The tour will last around 1 ½ - 2 hours, cover around 2 miles, and go up and down stairs. Please come prepared for walking with adequate footwear and rain protection!
