Encounter haunting tales & eerie trails in Edinburgh’s Old Town

The enthralling journey of ghostly encounters begins as you traverse through the winding streets of Old Town. Your adventure begins at the Royal Mile, where an English-speaking guide introduces their historical character and sets the eerie mood. As you tread along the cobblestone paths, the chilling tales of Old Town's squares, wynds and closes come alive. The highlight of this nocturnal journey is a visit to the Greyfriars Kirkyard, reputed to be the world's most haunted graveyard. As you stand among the tombstones under the cover of darkness, listen to hair-raising accounts of infamous poltergeists, bodysnatchers who bit off more than they could chew, and the scandalous exploits of serial killers Burke and Hare.

Descend into Edinburgh's underworld

Leave the modern city behind and descend below the South Bridge into the city's gloomy underground vaults. Here, 18th-century bridge arches and 17th-century stonework and fireplaces bear silent witness to bygone eras. As you walk beneath the skylights, remember to keep an eye out for the spectral inhabitants rumored to still haunt these murky chambers. After 80 minutes of spine-tingling spectacles and frights, your guide will bid you farewell and lead you back to the ticket office.
