    Tour Description:

    Historic Underground of Edinburgh Tour
    Get exclusive access to the Blair Street Underground Vaults - the largest system of underground caverns in Edinburgh. Built in the 18th century beneath South Bridge, we're the only tour company with access.

    Beneath the bustle of Edinburgh's Old Town you'll discover a dark, damp world unchanged since the 18th century. Your expert guide will lead you deep into the Blair Street Underground Vaults, and together you'll explore their history - including how they became home to the city's most destitute inhabitants.
