Tour company information

Black Hart Entertainment/City of the Dead Tours

Researched and designed by best-selling historical author and award winning novelist J A Henderson, our walks combine the weirdest stories, wickedest humour and wildest history. And we have sole access to two of the word's most haunted locations - Damnation Alley in Edinburgh's legendary 'Underground City' and the Covenanter's Prison in Greyfriars Graveyard. This locked section is the lair of the infamous Mackenzie Poltergeist, the best documented supernatural case of all time and responsible for hundreds of 'attacks' on our participants. Zoiks!
