What to Expect
The Early Afternoon Ghost Tours are walking tours led by a professional local guide in full period costume. You will walk around some of Edinburgh’s most historically fascinating Old Town Closes, where guides will overdose you with historical facts and stories of Edinburgh’s dark past, with the odd bad joke thrown in from time to time.

The tour will then take you into Edinburgh’s underground vaults, located underneath the historic South Bridge, just off Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile.

These vaults are known to be some of the most haunted in the world and many a ghost has been spotted lurking around both by visitors and guides alike. 

Ghosts, torture, death and horror … Is there any better way to start your evening?
