Places-People-History

Availability: Out of stock

Edinburgh has long had a proud and distinctive identity as the capital city of Scotland. Throughout its history it has been renowned as a home of science, education, literature and culture, and today the city hosts the world-famous Edinburgh Festival every year. It’s the home of the Scottish Parliament and is a leading financial centre. Its beautiful architectural heritage, with the medieval Old Town alongside the elegant Georgian New Town, is matched by its remarkable natural setting, with the skyline of the city dominated by the extinct volcano of Arthur’s Seat.

In this book local author Lisa Sibbald takes the reader on a fascinating A–Z tour of the city’s history, exploring its streets and byways, to tell the story of its buildings, places and people along the way. Fully illustrated throughout, A–Z of Edinburgh will appeal to all those with an interest in the capital city of Scotland.
