Go under the streets of Edinburgh's South Bridge to hear terrifying ghost stories on a 75-minute tour of Edinburgh's paranormally active Vaults. See the infamous stone circle vault, and a horrifying torture exhibition.

Join this guided walking tour of the Vaults below Edinburgh's South Bridge for the city’s darkest and most frightening experience as you hear ghost stories of the city told below the streets.

The Torture Exhibition await for those with a strong enough stomach to learn how these devices were used in times gone by. Then go to the infamous Edinburgh Vaults, the home of “The Watcher” ghost, learn about the horrific living conditions and listening to stories of murderers who roamed the streets, see the infamous stone circle vault, and discover why you should never step inside!

Tour is strictly for over 18s only.
