Your Experience

Ghosts, torture, deaths, murders, horror and everything gruesome. A perfect way to begin your afternoon/evening. Your plunge into the dark world begins at the tour point as you’re greeted by your guide in a full costume representing one of the horrors of the past.

Walk through the Old Town of Edinburgh and go underground to the infamous ‘Edinburgh Vaults’ and discover the hidden pathways underneath the Royal Mile. Your guide will guide you through shadowy lanes and courtyards while telling you stories about the past and reveal the many crimes committed here.

Be sure to keep on your ‘ghost radar’ as you explore the dark subterranean chambers and look out for any strange voices or sounds; many visitors that have been here do report weird sensations and sightings.
