It's your last chance to play tourist in your city before the August crowds arrive. Why not join the Cobbletales architecture tours to learn about Edinburgh's amazing architectural heritage.  The Dean Village Tour runs from 10am on Sunday and the New Town Tour starts at 2pm on Saturday.



Mackintosh Bus Tour

The bus will pick you up and drop you off between Kelvin Hall, the Willow Tea Room, the Mackintosh House, the Lighthouse, Kelvingrove, Scotland Street and the Queens Cross Church. Check out the special programmes offered along the route here and the timetable here.

Everyone's favourite cake shop, Lovecrumbs has teamed up with talented checfs Kiran McCafferty and Anna Andorno to organise a pasta pop-up dinner at their West Port premises - what's not to love? Expect a mountain of fresh pasta, cake for dessert and of course nice times around the shared table. The dinners are on this Sunday and next Monday (23rd July) between 7-9pm and advanced booking is highly recommended via the Lovecrumbs website.
