An Alternative Tour of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital
A series of small wall paintings have started to appear around the hospital. ‘Calling Cards’ from past and present patients within the hospital.
Each painting has been placed in a space which is of personal significance to the person who painted the picture. It just so happens that each of the spaces also has had a number of different identities over the past 200 years. This walking tour will provide people with stories about each of the paintings, the personal significance of each space and stories of the corridors, wards and rooms of this Victorian Psychiatric institution. There is a guidebook written by Nicola White to accompany each tour.
