Went to the Dungeon and had such a fun time! Informative, but scary. Lots of tales and scares. Also includes a thrill ride at the end.

Went with a group from work, fantastic tour. All of the team working there make an effort playing there roles, and you have a great laugh with them. Would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh

I'm no scare-dy cat but this made me SCREAM as well as learn a few historical facts. I can't give anything away but it was creepy, funny and at one point jump scares at the same time. My most memorable trip anywhere.

People leaving negative reviews need to investigate the offering before they go. This is not a true historic recollection with an educational tour of genuine historical places. This a a fun attraction with great actors and it's a bit of a giggle. As two supposed...More

Quite scary interactive fun. Makes you jump at times but they don't touch you. You walk from dungeon to dungeon in the dark and screamed at by dungeon keepers. Ghoulish stuff

The Edinburgh Dungeon's is in the heart of the city, we visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was pretty busy. We had booked online beforehand which provides a reduced price and lets you jump the queue, well worth it for the saving alone but...More

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

We had a 10 year old in our group and although he was a little apprehensive at first, he loved it. The drop isn't that far.
