If you go with friends that are easily scared it going to be hilarious. The actors are really good and they interact a lot with the tourist. I personally liked it: I love horror stuff and I found it really well done. Price £18

We had the best time visiting it; the actors are superb and by far the best choice from our to do list in Edinburgh. I highly recommend not to skip the Dungeons when you visit Edinburgh!!!!

Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
