Take a look at what the lovely people at Mercat Tours are up to!

Here at City of Literature, we are very excited to hear about their Enlightenment Edinburgh tour. If you enjoyed the bright lights of our enLIGHTen campaign, why not trace the footsteps of those influential thinkers who made Edinburgh their home in the 18th Century? Hear about David Hume, Adam Smith, Walter Scott, James Hutton and many more along the way...

Or just visiting Edinburgh for a few days? Mercat Tours have teamed up with Hotel Du Vin to tell the infamous story of Burke and Hare. Mercat Tours promise to deliver the true, gory facts about this notorious twosome, but leave you to decide just who was to blame... Come to your verdict over some yummy food in Hotel Du Vin’s Burke and Hare room.

Visit the Mercat Tours website for information on how to book or to have a look at the many tours on offer.
