Description

This vaults tour takes you beneath the streets of Edinburgh's Old Town into a dimly lit space that many considered to be haunted. Your tour lasts 60 minutes and visits the vaults of the South Bridge that date back to the 1700s. These are the same vaults mentioned on Most Haunted Live as one of the scariest places on earth. Inside the vaults you’ll learn how they’ve been used over the years and the living conditions endured by the poor and homeless residents who frequented them. The darker side of Edinburgh's history will unfold as you wander through the candle-lit underground area. From your costumed guide you’ll hear about the Burke and Hare murders, the persecution of witches, and the infamous characters who stalked the streets of Old Edinburgh.
