Explore the heartland of Edinburgh’s traditional pub scene on Rose Street, a narrow traffic-free zone that runs parallel to the main thoroughfare of the city. Rose Street is lined with historic pubs, each oozing authentic character and traditional Scottish whiskeys and beers, and you’ll not only learn about Scotland’s brewing and distilling history but enjoy up to three drinks - on us too!

Edinburgh is home to some of the oldest drinking establishments in the UK. On your private, guided tour of Rose Street, you will learn about Scotland’s long association with whiskey, enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and comforting smells of brass polish, yeast, and hops – and get cosy by warming fires! Visit three establishments and hear all the tales and scandals of Edinburgh’s centuries-old pub culture.
