Stop At: City of the Dead Tours, Edinburgh Scotland
This tour ventures into the most haunted section of Edinburgh’s legendary Underground City, where a population once lived in utter misery. Black as Satan’s jammies, with a fascinating history to match, these vaults were forgotten for centuries and only recently unsealed.
This part of the South Bridge Vaults is known as Damnation Alley. With good reason. These dark tunnels and are stalked by a malevolent presence known as the South Bridge Entity.

Amelia was super knowledgeable and humorous, and kept us entertained, without being boring. The vaults were interesting and I enjoyed hearing the history of what happened in them. I’d recommend the tour. For £13, it’s worth it.

Hi there, All of our guides are different and not "scripted" so every guide is different. The guides all research their own stories and basically take you to the locations and talk to you.
