Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
If you’re entranced by the paranormal, look no further than this adults-only ghost tour that unlocks access to Edinburgh’s darkest places. Led by your fearless guide, venture in search of the undead into ancient Greyfriars Kirkyard, known as the most haunted cemetery in the world. Brave a sinister encounter in the Haunted Vault and learn the mysteries of the city’s dark past.
  • Walk Edinburgh’s haunted streets, vaults, and graveyards by night
  • Hear terrifying tales of gruesome deaths—and returns from the grave
  • Shiver at the ghostly horrors of Greyfriars Kirkyard
  • Brave the haunted vault below the city at Niddry Street Vaults
What to Expect
As night falls across Scotland’s ancient capital, greet your guide and embark on an adults-only journey through the city’s sinister past. Learn the grim history of Greyfriars Kirkyard, where quiet and unquiet souls have rested since the 16th century, and gothic monuments rear against the gloomy sky. Walk on through the darkening night to the Niddry Street Vaults that stretch below the city. Once home to witches, criminals, the destitute, and a hellfire club—and rumored to be the hunting ground of serial killers Burke and Hare—these echoing cellars are now the site of regular paranormal happenings. Something evil awaits in the Haunted Vault. Be warned!

Ewan was brilliant! He was very informative and could tell he really knew his stuff. He made the tour fun but also did the stories proud. I would definitely say go but if you struggle with stairs or small places, Maybe not the best for yourselves.
