What You Can Expect

Edinburgh Night Walking Including Underground Vaults

Hidden and Haunted Ghost Walking Tour Edinburgh

Take a 1-hour ghost walking tour through Edinburgh and discover its mysterious secrets and chilling history. Your entertaining guide leads you down side streets and alleyways, and recounts supernatural history, fiendish plots and sinister tales from the city’s darkest corners to its subterranean chambers.

Visit sites of hangings and documented spirit hauntings; discover where Edinburgh’s disreputable characters committed crimes of passion; and hear legendary stories, such as that of a wizard who was burned at the stake. Learn, too, about the notorious ‘bodysnatchers’ who reputedly stole fresh bodies from graveyards to sell to medical schools for anatomy lectures.

Then follow your guide underground to the Blair Street Vaults, built under the 19 stone arches of the South Bridge constructed in the late 18th century. Led by candlelight flickering in the shadows, you’ll see where lively poltergeists bide their time and learn of Edinburgh’s darkest deeds before your tour ends back above ground.

Loved the way Artemis really got into the role of story-teller of all things scary and gruesome. Interesting historical facts interspersed with delightful morbid humour. She included the audience in a bit of role playing which was funny. Enjoyed going down into the vaults with it's atmospheric lighting and frightening encounters. Well worth an hour on a cold winter's evening.

This is one of the only nighttime walking tours I've taken that's actually creeped me out! The guide had great stories throughout the city on our way to the underground vaults, and then when we entered the vaults everything was lit by candlelight. Amazing ambience for all of the ghost stories.

WE honestly didn't know what it would be like, but it was incredible fun. Our host Jared was excellent - so funny! I really enjoyed the door, made sure I wore stable shoes LOL, and prepared to have a a great time.

Simon was a fabulous guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This is a creepy tour and if you're jumpy or claustrophobic I don't recommend it. If you're up for a walk down a dark alley, standing in haunted, chilly, old vaults listening to ghost stories, I recommend it! Also it's not very long so you can grab a pint at the pub, take the tour and then go to dinner!
