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 Mercat 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!

With a glass in hand in our candle-lit Megget’s Cellar, you will sit back and enjoy hearing about the other side of Edinburgh’s noble character.

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