The Edinburgh Dungeon Entrance Ticket

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.

    This was our 2nd time going back to the Dungeon. Our kids begged and begged us to make the trip back to Edinburgh so they could go through it again. It is worth purchasing your tickets online prior to arriving to avoid lineups or delay...More

    The Staff & actors performed well. The stories and materials are very informative, although the experience is really not that "Chilling."

    Booked this based on supposedly excellent reviews. Perhaps I should have checked it out in more detail before I forked out the £30 as I was expecting a historical tour. However the whole thing is an ongoing interaction between actors and the audience in a...More

    I have previously visited the York and Warwick Castle Dungeons. I think that Edinburgh is the best so far. It feels like Edinburgh's Dungeon is a lot bigger which means there are several 'rides' for want of a better word, and more effort is put...More
