Description

Hear tales of stinking streets, terrible tortures and ghostly goings-on.  A daytime tour that will take you to some of the city’s most horrible haunts, including a visit to the famous Blair Street Underground Vaults. You’ll hear all about the creepy characters lurking in the past, and the hideous history of how people lived in 19th century Edinburgh. As you walk this city built on witch trials, body snatching and a gruesome past of torture, your expert guide will take you to the places where history lives. You will visit the winding closes of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Learn the meaning of 'gardyloo' and hope you never hear it, grimace at the tales of Scottish witches and find out what treasure could be found buried in a 19th century graveyard (clue: it’s not gold and shiny). You’ll even hear what school children commonly packed in their school bags, other than their books. This was a time when living in overcrowded closes proved as frightful as the ghoulish apparitions.  Hear what jobs were available for younger members of society, and get a glimpse at what a family ‘home’ might look like. You’ll finish your excursion beneath the streets in the exclusive Blair Street Underground Vaults, once frequented by some of Edinburgh’s less appealing characters. And possibly still is…
