You'll hear all about the creepy characters lurking in the past and the hideous real history of how people lived in 19th century Edinburgh.

    To start, you'll visit the winding closes of Edinburgh's Old Town. Learn the meaning of gardyloo and hope you never hear it, grimace at the tales of Scottish witches and find out what treasure could be found buried in a 19th century graveyard (clue: it's not gold and shiny).

Hear what jobs were available for younger members of society and get a glimpse at what a family ‘home' might look like. You'll finish your excursion beneath the streets in our exclusive Blair Street Underground Vaults, once frequented by some of Edinburgh's less appealing characters. And possibly still is…
