The darkest secrets and souls of the city…

Discover Edinburgh’s history at its most chilling. We save the darkest, most sinister, most unsettling tales to our last, late night ghost tour.

You'll hear of bloody plots that led to treason and torture; secret lives that lead to horrific deaths and tormented souls.

You’ll discover the more disreputable character, and characters, of Edinburgh’s dark closes.

Our renowned Blair Street Underground Vaults, like our city, hide dark tales of dark deeds which we’ll share as candles flicker in the shadows…
