Select Date and Travellers
At street level, Edinburgh is a peaceful and pretty city—but the subterranean tunnels below tell an entirely different story. On this ghostly walking tour, explore historic sites including Greyfriars Kirkyard and St. Giles’ Cathedral with your enthusiastic guide, and hear chilling tales of murder and revenge. Delve down into underground caverns normally closed to the public, and learn of Edinburgh’s grim and gruesome past.
What to Expect
When darkness falls over Scotland’s ancient capital, make your way to the historic Royal Mile to meet your entertaining guide and begin your underground ghost tour.
Follow your guide through the Old Town’s shadowy lanes and cobbled courtyards, and take in top attractions including Greyfriars Kirkyard—considered among the most haunted cemeteries in the world—and St. Giles’ Cathedral.
Along the way, hear haunting tales of crime and punishment dating back through the centuries, and keep watch for otherworldly sightings of ghosts and ghouls.
Next, head down into Edinburgh’s subterranean caverns with your guide. Discover 18th-century archways, hidden doorways, and underground vaults, and hear spine-tingling tales from beyond the grave.
When your time in the undergrounds tunnels comes to an end, return to the Old Town to conclude your walking tour.

Interesting and informative

Our guide was Lady Primrose (Kirsty), and she was excellent. Very informative and enthusiastic with lots of facts throughout the tour. Our son (12) was with us and he loved it, but was a wee bit scared in the vaults, but it really it is...More

Great tour!

Captain Porteous was our guide for the evening & did a fantastic job regailing us with interesting stories from the city’s past. Just the right dose of humour amongst the historical facts & grisly details!

No, not at all. We took our 9 year old and he loved it.
