    Tour Description:

    Descend and Discover Independent Visit of Edinburgh Vaults Deep beneath the streets of Scotland's capital, you'll discover the city's oldest vaults. This self-guided tour is ideal for independent explorers, young and old.

    Armed with a map to guide you, descend into the Blair Street Underground Vaults to explore Edinburgh's subterranean past. See where the city's destitute lived and worked - and where their restless spirits tread.

    Descend and Discover Independent Visit of Edinburgh Vaults An expert local guide will start the story for you, then you're free to roam the vaults. Peering into the darker corners might give you an idea of where the body snatchers hid their wares, or how the city's most unfortunate inhabitants lived.

    Want to see Edinburgh's darkest secret?

    The vaults have changed little since the 18th century: in our Discovery Room you'll find a few artefacts from the first excavation in the 1980s, as well as a 3D model and a captivating presentation.

    Descend and Discover Independent Visit of Edinburgh Vaults You're then free to explore the vaults on your own for up to 45 minutes in the vaults. Go at your own pace, and spend a little time imagining life here: dark, damp, airless spaces, the heart of the city's underworld.

    - Discover secrets and stories of Edinburgh's underworld
