Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the Edinburgh Dungeon. As you enter, allow yourself to be wrapped up in the grisliest events of Scotland’s long history. Live actors greet you at every turn, reenacting disturbing histories such as the botched hanging of Maggie Dickson and Dr. Knox’s gruesome anatomy theater. Come face-to-face with Sawney Bean, arguably the world’s most infamous cannibal – but try to keep your head (and your limbs) and not end up on the chopping block.
    As you make the approximately 60-minute walk through the dungeons, experience highlights of Scotland’s horrible history through exceptional stages and special effects. Rile at the smells and sights of the plague and learn about the notorious ghosts in Scotland's haunted capital.
    Cap off your visit with a heart-stopping experience on the Drop Dead ride. Then test your nerves as you become a victim at the gallows in Grassmarket. At the mercy of the hangman, experience the final moments of terror as the floor falls out from under you.

    So out of all of the Dungeons, this has been the number one that I've always wanted to do because of a mixture of things. Firstly the history but also the length of it and its exciting originality to it with characters such as Burke...More

    We all enjoyed our visit, learning about the dark past in an engaging humorous way via superb actors. Interaction with visitors and one or two 'rides' made this very enjoyable.
