What to expect

Edinburgh is a city steeped in history, it's beautiful, quaint and traditional. But under this facade, deep in its belly, Edinburgh holds dark secrets, ones which will be revealed on this underground tour of the Vaults. You'll go into Edinburgh's underworld, seeing the series of vaults under the South Bridge which date back to the 1700s. Having been home to notorious criminals as well as the poorest within society, plenty of people died in the Vaults, so it's no wonder that they are said to be rife with paranormal activity. Hear about ghostly activity and maybe even experience some as you discover the most haunted part of Edinburgh. You will also visit our torture exhibition to hear about some of Edinburgh's darker past and how some of these items were used.
