A light-hearted journey into Edinburgh's dark past. With a heady mix of dramatic story-telling, gruesome history and haunted Underground Vaults. The full tour includes a visit to Megget's Cellar for further stories and a complimentary drink to soothe the nerves!
By day Edinburgh is a bustling metropolis, but at night the old buildings and narrow closes take on a more sinister air. A long history of murder, torture, hangings and plague has left a haunting legacy on the city's Old Town and ghostly apparitions now walk its streets.
Enter the Underground Vaults whose walls, it is said, have absorbed the memories of those who once lived and worked there. This part of the tour is not for the faint-hearted. Cling tightly to the person beside you: we try to leave with the same number as we had on going in!
Choose the full tour and end your experience with a complimentary drink in the atmospheric Megget's Cellar, a candlelit nook located above the Underground Vaults, where the guide will continue to entertain you with eerie tales from Edinburgh's past.
