Where: Tour starts in St. Andrew Square and finishes in Festival Square (see below for more details)

What:  Take an informative and interactive, guided walking tour, full of surprises, around Edinburgh's financial districts this autumn. Behind the grand facades of some of the most well known banks, pension funds and hedge funds there is a hidden story to tell. Our tour guides will expose how these 'esteemed' finance institutions are investing in dirty energy around the world, and fuelling climate change.
But it's not all doom and gloom: you'll also hear stories of inspiring historical figures, hardy activists and banks that dare to be different. And you'll discover how you can help change things for the better.
Join us on a tour this autumn for history, anecdotes and eye-opening information. Dress warmly and prepare to be scandalised...

The route:
The tour will last around two hours.  The route begins by going around historic St Andrew Square, then goes a short distance along George St to Hanover St from where you'll be taken by taxi to Festival Square for the second part of the tour. From here you'll be guided around the pedestrianised area of the modern Exchange district, finishing back at Festival Square.
