Underground Vaults and Graveyard Ghost Tour in Edinburgh
Tour Theme: Ghost Tours
This tour starts from: Edinburgh
Duration: Half Day - 1 hour 45 min
Explore the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults with access no other tour company can offer, then head to the Canongate graveyard, where the spirits of the dead await.
It might be something to do with the change in temperature. Or the perpetual darkness. Or the ever smaller rooms, stretching beyond the weak beam of a torch. Whatever the reason, there’s something unsettling about the Blair Street Underground Vaults - and your expert local guide will reveal the troubling tales on this evening walking tour.
Cannibals. Body snatchers.
Deals with the Devil.
And that’s before we head underground.
Torture. Murder. Hangings. And that’s just what went on in the vaults.
A walk along dim streets to the Canongate graveyard will bring you to the resting place of the city’s most famous figures: Adam Smith, the father of economics; David Rizzio, the lover of Mary Queen of Scots; and James Douglas, 3rd Marquess of Queensberry - the infamous cannibal of the Canongate.
