Spirits of Halloween

About this tour

Raise the spirits of Halloween with a ghost tour of Edinburgh’s spookier closes and wynds, before venturing into the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults. Recover in the cellar with a bat’s blood cocktail.

Edinburgh’s crowds have always had a grisly side. On this walking tour, you’ll tread the medieval closes of Edinburgh’s Old Town, as your costumed guide leads you through a world that once thrived on blood, guts and gore.

Down into the vaults, deep into the spirit world

The Blair Street Underground Vaults come alive at Halloween – mysteriously cobwebbed, candlelit, and flickering with menace. Stay close to your guide as the darkness deepens: there’s no telling what hides in the shadows.

Emerging from your tour into the warmth of Megget’s cellar, you’ll rest for a moment with a glass of refreshing bat’s blood or witch’s brew, listening to the final tales of Edinburgh’s haunted past.
