Developing Literary Tourism
Edinburgh is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, and it’s literature is a huge draw for visitors. The Edinburgh City of Literature Trust encourages businesses to think bookishly, to incorporate the stories in the stones around them to bring visitors even closer to their favourite books and writers.
To help out the Trust has created a literary tourism toolkit, open to all businesses who want to offer something more to the literary traveller.
