Hi, I’m Svend-Erik

I’ve lived in Edinburgh for 5 years

I am Storyteller


Hello there, I'm Svend-Erik - your humorous and warm Edinburgh host with a curious and creative spirit. As a lover of storytelling and history, I'm always eager to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for this beautiful city. What I love most about Edinburgh is that every street and every house has a story to tell. And let's not forget the stunning sunsets - although, I must admit, the city can be a little spooky at night. But hey, that's just part of its charm, right? When I'm not exploring the city's hidden nooks and crannies, you can usually find me at the Storytelling Centre, listening to and telling stories. And right now, with the cherry blossoms blooming, I absolutely love strolling through the Meadows - it's simply magical. I also know all the best local trips and tips, and can help you find some great places for local food. So, whether you're up for a laugh, a good story, or simply want to explore Edinburgh like a local, I'm your guy. Let's have some fun and create unforgettable memories together!
