Scary but cool. A really excellent experience for everyone(maybe not young children if they scare easily). Educational and fun at the same time would love to go again!

We have visited London and York Dungeons and Edinburgh by far is the best Dungeon! It was extremely entertaining, scary and funny at the same time! Definitely worth a visit.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
