Ghostbusting Birthdays!

Book this event if you’d like...

  • To hear grisly, ghostly tales in the Old Town, when the best birthday presents you could expect were new pus filled boils and a dose of plague…
  • test which of your friends is the bravest when you visit the famous Blair Street Underground Vaults…
  • to celebrate your special day with a treat and song in candle-lit Megget’s Cellar

A ghoulish and gruesome ghostbusting party!

Witches and warlocks will be hunted down; gruesome punishments may be carried out on your most special friends and dark haunted vaults await those who didn’t give you a present!

During your Ghostbusting Birthday your cloaked guide will lead you to some of the darkest corners of Old Edinburgh, ending in the Blair Street Underground Vaults where tales of ghosts and ghouls will continue. Every party goer will get a torch to guide them safely round the vaults and to ward off the spirits that lurk in the darkness.

If you make it out of the vaults in one piece, we will make our way to the candlelit Megget’s Cellar where you will hear more eerie stories...

Please get in touch and we'll be happy to arrange your private tour
