    What to Expect
    This is a special 75 minute over-18's only exploration of Edinburgh's darkest history and paranormal secrets. You will be taken on a journey down into the infamous underground vaults.

    Who were the infamous characters that once roamed these areas, leaving behind a legacy of legend and notoriety?

    The South Bridge Vaults has even higher levels of paranormal activity late at night, approaching the witching hour, your tour is the prime time to explore these haunted and eerie locations for yourself. Ask your guide about their own paranormal experiences and hear about some of the reports we regularly receive from visitors, paranormal investigators and mediums.

    Finally you shall receive free access to a torture exhibition to see the instruments from the “Burning Times”, used to extract confessions, and punish the unfortunate.

    Dare you join for this celebration of the paranormal and macabre? Who knows what might happen? Will the Poltergeist attack? You have been warned. This tour is for over 18s only.
