Book this event if you’d like...

  • an adult-themed tale told with a merry twinkle that might make you blush!
  • a complimentary drink in our candle-lit cellar
  • a hidden history no other tour covers

Unlacing respectable Edinburgh…

Some think our ancestors were straight-laced and demure – certainly not!  But that’s a history rarely explored…and so we have created a history tour with a difference…

Edinburgh has tales of love, lust and passions which will surprise, shock and entertain. Discover how some wayward wives and misbehaving men rid themselves of each other – though not to be tried at home!

Clasp hands and cosy into your Valentine on this exclusive experience of the Old Town’s closes and wynds. Then enjoy a complimentary refreshment in our candle-lit underground Megget’s Cellar on your alternative romantic night.  You'll relish hearing about the other side of Edinburgh’s noble character – though be prepared to blush!
