Go through dark courtyards and lanes as your guide provides you with intriguing pieces of ghastly history of heinous murders committed and the notorious criminals that once lived here.
Visit the world’s most haunted cemetery
After the Vaults, you will be at the Greyfriars Kirkyard. It is known as the most haunted graveyard in the world. It dates back to the 1560s, but with its weird and bizarre occurrences, steadily attracts writers, TV producers and ghost hunters. The burial grounds are said to be haunted by many paranormal figures; the most active and aggressive one being the MacKenzie Poltergeist. George MacKenzie was a ruthless persecutor during a Presbyterian movement in the 17th century. Many tour purveyors during their excursions around the cemetery reported mysterious events. A lot of participants returned from the prison with scratches, burns and broken bones. Take the Edinburgh Ghost Tour to access this terrifying attraction. See the tombstones come out of the earth and hear tales of missing bodies, poltergeists and the legendary loyal dog of the graveyard.
Head to the Edinburgh underground vault at the end

Listen to stories about the previous location of the city’s medical school. Discover secrets about the infamous duo, Burke and Hare, who would murder unsuspected victims and sell their bodies for money.
