Mercat Tours
Evening of Ghosts and Ghouls

Book this tour if you'd like...

  • a light-hearted, entertaining look at our ghoulish past, and ghostly present
  • to see the famous haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults, exclusive to Mercat Tours
  • to relish a complimentary refreshment and tales by candle-lit in our exclusive Megget’s Cellar

Entertainment – 17th Century style!

An evening of spine-tingling storytelling awaits you. 

How best to experience our grim and ghostly past? Just as our ghoulish ancestors did…with gusto!  

The infamous ‘Edinburgh mob’ loved the ‘entertainment’ of blood, guts and gore. And there was plenty provided! Especially at the Mercat Cross.

Hear grisly tales of witchcraft, torture and restless spirits as you venture down medieval closes and descend into the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults.

As night darkens, savour a welcome drink by candle-light, as we weave tales in our atmospheric, underground cellar.

Visit where the ghosts of Edinburgh's past still haunt her present...

Entertaining and Ghostly
