Went there as a first date and it was scary as well as having a good amount of scares too, you can tell the actors clearly love their jobs.

I must be honest, it was boring for me. Maybe for someone who is from Scotland or the UK, it might be ok. I gave the three stars only because of the dead drop. The actors are nice and do a good job, but it...More

Brilliant day out. Go, you won’t be disappointed. Tbe girl in the torture chamber was the highlight for me. She’s very funny. The witch was also superb. Took out two sons ages 7 and 8. They were a little scared but that’s the point 👍

Loved the whole experience. Fun, scary, interesting. If you are lucky and being picked up, you could be put on trial or in the cage!!!!

The Edinburgh Dungeons are fantastic. The staff are really good and the characters they play are great. A good way to spend a couple of hours with a few frights thrown in

Spooky way to spend a couple of hours. We had a couple of money off vouchers so that helped with the cost. Good history and entertainment rolled into one. The actors really get into the performance. Would not advise for little children if at all...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

Hi there - the Dungeon doesn't allow children under 5 at all, but we also don 't recommend for under 8s. However this is at the discretion of their parents or guardians who know them best. Some don't find it scary, some find... More
