Trainspotting Tour

There are few books that have changed the landscape of contemporary Scottish literature quite like Irvine Welsh’s debut novel of 1993. Over the course of two hours, you’ll spot Irvo’s flat, Sick Boy’s pub and Leith police station on your way to getting the true story behind the places that made the book so powerful.

The Port O’Leith Bar, Edinburgh, Fri 11, Thu 17–Sat 19 Jun.

Trainspotting Tour

The story behind Leith's own famous fictional version of the 1980s drug scene, and a chance to see where Mark Renton, Begbie, Sickboy and the gang used to hang.
