Afternoon Old Town and Underground Tour 1:15, 3:15, 5:15

Join us for a darkly entertaining, but family friendly, afternoon jaunt through the Old Town of Edinburgh and one of its famous underground vaults. Let one of our enthusiastic, knowledgeable guides, dressed in period costume, lead you through this historic neighbourhood while sharing some fascinating tales from the more bloody side of Scotland’s past, involving murder, bodysnatching, witchcraft and even cannibalism. For the second half of the tour descend into our exclusive section of underground and explore its intriguing but sinister haunted chambers.
