From Our Editors

Found in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, Greyfriars Kirk is home to over four centuries of history. Today the site doubles up as both a parish church and a concert venue, while weekly tours allow guests to uncover more about Greyfriars Bobby, the National Covenant and other artefacts. As part of the Kirk's mission to the community, the adjacent Grassmarket Centre provides help to people in need of support with activities such as woodwork, cookery, gardening and weaving. The Centre also has a café which is open to the public.

I wouldn't go back for another tour and was glad I hadn't paid the full price

Just don't think when touring site comments should be made of a political nature as that may put people off visiting if they have other views. Guide was Vv informative and gave us a thorough tour but stick to history.

Just to say our guide (think it was Jimmy) told us the History of Greyfriars in a very interesting way. We could tell he loved what he did and it came over. I have already told a few people about this tour and like myself they didn't know it was on offer.
