On the occasion of Edinburgh Deaf Festival, we will be running daily tours, with the option of BSL and IS, for you to explore some of Edinburgh’s historic deaf landmarks.

This year we are proud to offer a range of tours led by our team of local guides. Trained under John A Hay MBE, they will tell stories from his popular Heritage Trail.
