Edinburgh's Dean Village History and Architecture: A Self-Guided Audio Tour


Select Option


Chart the fate of Dean Village from industrious prosperity to complete disrepute, before it became the most desirable residential district in Edinburgh.

On this self-guided GPS walking tour, you'll go around the ancient and picturesque milling village that still contains traces of its Baronial legacy. You'll see the old bridge, the tollbooth, the mill and the weir, which were all formerly controlled by the Incorporation of Baxters (bakers).

You'll be pointed to easy-to-miss details on buildings, and see old maps and drawings. While hearing about model Victorian social housing, you'll wander around Well Court, a heritage building commissioned in the 1880s and you'll walk through a chic cemetery which was the place to be buried in the 1800s, to see two modern art galleries, once-glamorous Georgian orphanages.
