Edinburgh Darkside Walking Tour: Mysteries, Murder and Legends

1,624 reviews
The atmospheric city of Edinburgh is best explored by night, when tales of mystery and murder are at their most frightening. Discover the dark side of Scotland's capital on a historical walking tour that covers Edinburgh’s morbid past. Wind your way through the cobbled streets of Calton Hill, North Bridge, and Canongate cemetery, all of which are inaccessible by coach bus or car, and listen to stories that focus on torture, treason, and death.

Visited to experience the "Edinburgh version of Christmas Carol". A clever adaptation of the traditional Xmas story based on fear and redemption of Mr Scrooge. Very enjoyable production incorporating the "tail" excuse the pun , of the faithful dog and his dying master.

Superb show with emotive performances from the whole car. Some delightful contemporary nods as well a few Edinburghcentric Easter eggs. Ebeneezer. Scroggie would approve. Particular kudos for the puppeteers. A joyful experience in a glorious theatre.

All three of us thoroughly enjoyed the performance, which was made even more interesting because of the Edinburgh connections and jokes. The use of puppets for the dog, Bobby, and Tiny Tim were fascinating. All the actors were great, but a special mention must go to Crawford Logan in his role as Ebenezer Scrooge. The interior of the building was stunning in its grandeur and splendid-ness considering it is a small theatre compared to some in town! If you are seated in the galleries, be sure to go to the stage level during intermission and look up, way up, at the magnificent chandelier and amazing architecture. As well, the seats were comfortable and the box office staff and ushers were very welcoming. All-in-all, I would heartily recommend this theatre and this show for a great night out in Edinburgh.

...the staff were not just helpful, but pro-actively helpful, the seats were comfortable, the interior was fascinating, and the play that I went to see (Solaris) was immersive. In short, I enjoyed the whole experience.
