Overview

Fans of the paranormal will be thrilled by this evening ghost tour of Edinburgh, one of the UK’s most haunted cities. Your storyteller-guide will transport you into a murky past replete with witchcraft, torture, and murder. Venture into the eerie Blair Street Underground Vaults, enjoy a whisky in creepy Megget’s Cellar, and learn the city’s dark history from an expert.

What to Expect

Greet your guide and group by St. Giles' Cathedral and set off to explore Edinburgh’s atmospheric Old Town. As you stroll through the evening streets, savor gory tales of times long past: legends of the city’s ghosts, ghouls, and witches, plus savage stories of tortures, murders, and burnings.

Learn about the Edinburgh Mob riots and then brave the underbelly of the city: the infamous Blair Street Underground Vaults. Deep below Edinburgh’s tranquil streets, ghosts including Jack, Mr. Boots, and the sinisterly named Watcher are said to roam. Finish your tour in Megget’s Cellar. A glass of local whisky should soothe jangled nerves before you travel back to your hotel.

A fun evening

Such a fun tour!! Our guide Edgar was hilarious. His enthusiasm definitely made the evening even more fun! Edgar shared some really interesting stories about Edinburgh and some were definitely creepy! This tour was really well done and the vaults are very cool to explore.

Guide stole the show!

We've done quite a few ghost tours in different cities and we're yet to find someone who was as enthusiastic and hilarious as our guide Fred! The content of the tour was very interactive and interesting. I would say, if you're claustrophobic, there is one...More

Knowledgeable and Spooky

Went on the 23:00 tour in late September and thoroughly enjoyed the two hours - especially the underground vaults. Didn't see any apparitions, but the place certainly had an atmosphere. The guide also knew his stuff and there were not "cheap" stunts. The whisky was...More
