Synopsis

Let's Explore Edinburgh Old Town by Anne Bruce English

The Old Town of Edinburgh has everything. At the highest point is a huge castle. At the foot of the hill there's a palace. Between them are secret gardens, a museum full of toys, a statue of the world famous Greyfriars Bobby, and much more besides. There were murders here too (think of Burke and Hare). There's mystery - is preacher John Knox really buried under parking space 44? And then there are the ghosts of Mary King's Close. You can find out about all this and more in this guide. Read the tales of the Old Town, check out the short quizzes and the Twenty Questions page (all the answers are given), and you'll have plenty to see and do.

About the Author

Anne Bruce English was introduced to Edinburgh as a child by her uncle, when she found the louring buildings of the Old Town somewhat intimidating. She has now lived here for many years and loves the city. Her strong interest in Edinburgh has led to her spending a lot of time wandering through the neuks and wynds of the Old Town, and discovering its past. She enjoys its light and its architecture and the fact that walking round a corner can unexpectedly reveal hills or the river or a gothic spire. Her Discovering Durham City published by County Durham Books in 1999, has proved very popular with young people and visitors, and she is currently working on Let's Explore Berwick-Upon-Tweed. Anne has written widely for children, including stories, poems and dramatised scripts for BBC radio programmes (Edinburgh and London based), and is published in many anthologies. Her interest in children's stories and how they develop began when she started reading to her own young children. She was responsible for establishing the successful Edinburgh Children's Book Group. She is married with two daughters and an elderly cat.
