Edinburgh Famous Underground Ghost Tour
From $13.11
At street level, Edinburgh is a peaceful and pretty city—but the subterranean tunnels below tell an entirely different story. On this ghostly walking tour, explore historic sites including Greyfriars Kirkyard and St. Giles’ Cathedral with your enthusiastic guide, and hear chilling tales of murder and revenge. Delve down into underground caverns normally closed to the public, and learn of Edinburgh’s grim and gruesome past.
What to Expect
When darkness falls over Scotland’s ancient capital, make your way to the historic Royal Mile to meet your guide and begin your underground ghost tour.
Follow your guide through Old Town’s shadowy lanes and cobbled courtyards, and take in top attractions including Greyfriars Kirkyard—considered to be one of the most haunted cemeteries in the world—and St. Giles’ Cathedral.
Along the way, hear haunting tales of crime and punishment dating back through the centuries, and keep watch for otherworldly sightings of ghosts and ghouls.
Next, head down into Edinburgh’s subterranean caverns with your guide. Discover 18th-century archways, hidden doorways, and underground vaults, and hear spine-tingling tales from beyond the grave.
When your time in the undergrounds tunnels comes to an end, return to the Old Town to conclude your walking tour.

It wasn't scary but although interesting for an adult I'm not sure if it would hold their interest?
