The Edinburgh Dungeon


31 Market Street, Edinburgh, City Of Edinburgh, EH1 1DF

    The Edinburgh Dungeon is a unique visitor attraction that brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel.

    Nobody tells stories like we do: exciting, scary and bloody funny. With a full cast of brilliant actors, authentic sets, special effects and two awesome rides, we'll take you on a unique thrill-filled adventure through 1000 years of Scotland's murky past.

    We've got a full cast of infamous villains, rogues and rascals that can't wait to meet you. Local cannibal Sawney Bean is waiting to pick your brains, serial killers Burke and Hare have body issues and warrior hero William Wallace is in pieces.

    Plus, see the back-breaking work that goes on in the torture chamber and feel the effects of the plague. Literally.

    It's an 80 minute experience you won't want to miss. Are you ready for this?
