Actual Education aims to be a company which shares our love of history with people around the world. We aren't going for the 'hard sell' approach so we've included an extensive, and ever growing, 'free stuff' section. Relax with our historic image jigsaws, send postcards featuring some very rare views of famous places or view some of our themed video clips.
We've been building up an extensive archive of old images of a number of different places covered in our Interactive Guided Tours. The 'Galleries' section of this website will let you view some galleries of images of Edinburgh, some dating back nearly two hundred years. You will need to view these on a laptop or handheld tablet capable of running Adobe Flash Player. If you wish to see an area of Edinburgh or York which hasn't been covered, send us an email and we will endevour to get some images online for you!
We love Google Earth! It is a good way to explore a city somewhere in the world...so why should you think about buying one of our Interactive Guided Tours? Google Earth is great but it just wasn't designed to do what our tours do. Our tours tell you some of the best stories each location has on offer. Most of our tours take you on a carefully chosen pathway which follows streets, defensive walls, closes and courtyards. Archive images, rotatable models, video clips and photographs give an understanding of history which most typical virtual tours aren't designed to do. A picture doesn't always tell a thousand words!
