Come and look around the University at your own pace with our self-guided walking tour podcast.
The University has three main sites within the city - this is an audio tour for our Central Area campus.
As the tour takes a circular route, you can start the tour at any point and it should take no more than an hour. We suggest walking at a leisurely pace with time to take in Edinburgh’s unique atmosphere and architecture.
If you wish to extend the tour to include High School Yards, The Pleasance and Moray House School of Education, add approximately 30 minutes.
Look out for the various plaques around the campus, which commemorate the achievements of individuals who have been associated with the University throughout its 400 years.
The Central Area campus tour is available through iTunes as a podcast, as an RSS feed subscription or by downloading the audio files individually.
