Shadows of Old Town

£ 15 per person

A trail of puzzles through the Old Town of Edinburgh. Available to play at anytime without start time restrictions. Bring your friends and family together and embark on your adventure. You'll start on Princes Street (just north of Waverley Station); disappear into many of Edinburgh's famous Closes, twisting to reemerge in beautiful parts of the city.

Work together to solve the clues, unlock the path and discover hidden parts of Edinburgh. Halfway you can enjoy a fabulous tucked away tavern near Edinburgh Castle. Warm up and get refreshed before you head back out to continue your journey.

Dive back in to your quest and unravel some more of Edinburgh's history before reaching the next break two thirds of the way through.

Recharge in some local taverns, the first near the midpoint and the second at the two thirds.
