Welcome to Leith Walks, home of Trainspotting Tours.

When Tim Bell lifts his head from researching his book provisionally titled ‘A Trainspotter’s Guide’ (which should be out in 2018, 25 years on from the launch of Trainspotting the book) there’s nothing he likes better than taking people on a Trainspotting tour of Leith. After more than ten years of doing them he likes to think there’s not much he doesn’t know – but his customers constantly surprise him with some new angle or insight.

He runs a wee programme of walks at Hogmanay, for Leith Festival, and in August. You can also make a private booking. Educational and customised tours are a speciality.
