Mit fogunk csinálni?

We start the tour in the New town of Edinburgh and explore it's connections with the 18th and 19th century global slave trade. Who benefited from the slave trade here? Who fought against it?

We then head straight into the Old Town and even find out what medieval Scottish kings thought about slavery. Who were the first Africans in Scotland? Why were they here? We answer these questions and many more

After this, we walk to Calton Hill and explore Edinburgh's more recent connections to the slave trade. Which Scots helped end Slavery? Who had an interest in retaining it?

We finish with a discussion on the legacy of Scotland's relationship with the slave trade.
Other things to note
This tour can run in poor weather so make sure you are appropriately dressed. We will be discussing a very contentious topic so please also come with an open mind and a realisation that distressing details will be brought up which some guests may find upsetting.

Gains was a wonderfully knowledgeable guide on this tour. Edinburgh is an amazing city, but its wealth is based on this terrible history. Gains did a great job of making this clear and linking its history with contemporary events, as well as giving us a great tour.

This was a fascinating and thoughtful tour. The readings from contemporaneous documents was a great touch that really helped bring the debates and issues pertaining to the various stories to life. The guide is incredibly knowledgable about the subject and answered the many questions we put to him in an accessible way. Would definitely recommend.

This was a rewarding experince. We learned about the myriad links between slavery, Edinburgh and Scotland. Locations were well chosen and reflected the issues. The topics raised were pertinent to 21st century life. Gains proved to be an informative, engaging and sympathetic guide. We would wholeheartedly recommend this tour.

A fascinating introduction to an important aspect of Edinburgh's history. A good combination of information with walks to relevant sites in the city. We learnt a lot about a subject that was relatively new to us and it gave us much food for further thought.

Gains gave an excellent tour on Empire and Slavery in Edinburgh. He adapted the material to fit our background knowledge and interests, and had a wealth of information that should be much more widely known. He shared sources/ websites to pursue the topics discussed further. Great tour, well researched and thought out, it felt as though we were exploring the city with a particularly well-read friend!
