About this tour

Follow the journey many made just once. Explore the sinister history that lies beneath our feet and discover tales of Edinburgh characters who were doomed to die and doomed to haunt the living.

This is your only chance to visit BOTH the long buried Blair Street Underground Vaults, exclusively with Mercat, and the atmospheric Canongate graveyard, where the spirits of the dead await you… Without the safety of bustling crowds, we'll peel back and reveal the dark, underlying history of Scotland's capital. Behind closed doors, in dank taverns and shadowy, cobbled streets there were whispered plots, cruel conspiracies and appalling betrayals. However, justice came to all!  With your imagination, and our dramatic storytelling, Edinburgh's most unsavoury history will chill you and linger long into the night...
