Having got in the mood on the tour, go and see T2 somewhere in Edinburgh. It’s a month for Trainspotters.
Three great options are normally available for private bookings:
1. THE DEID DUG TOUR
Everyone remembers the Deid Dug scene from the book and the film. Stand in the line of fire! The on-location passages from the book come thick and fast in this Leith Town Centre tour, ending at Leith Central Station for the T-word.
2. THE WORST TOILET TOUR
The film scene wasn’t shot here, but you can see where the book puts it. It’s well off the tourist trail! Call at Leith Central Station, Edinburgh Sheriff Court and Deacon Brodie’s pub, and end on Leith Street, at the only distinctive Edinburgh location in the film. This tour requires at least two buses for which you’ll need a Lothian Buses day ticket.
