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.

Interesting look at the city's history and vaults

Although the delivery of the information on the tour was a bit cheesy, I highly recommend it because you will learn so much about the darker side of Edinburgh's history. Actually walking through the Blair Street vaults and hearing the history of their use is...More

Not so scary

Bit disappointed with this to be honest. Went with 4 friends on a warm Saturday evening in May. It looked really promising to start but that was it. Basically ghost stories with a lot of standing around. Short walk from the meeting point took us...More

Wouldn't recommend this to anyone

We did a ghost tour on a Tuesday night and were unfortunately assigned Edgar who was an extremely bad storyteller and tour guide. His attempt at humor and spookiness were both poor and we were struggling to keep up with him for 2 full hours...More
