Secrets of the Royal Mile Walking Tour 1:00 PM Thumbnail

Take a light hearted journey into Edinburgh's dark past. This tour offers a mix of dramatic story telling, history and haunted Underground Vaults. By day Edinburgh is a bustling metropolis, but at night the old buildings and narrow closes take on a more sinister air. A long history of murder, torture, hangings and plague has left a haunting legacy on the city's Old Town and ghostly apparitions now walk its streets. Enter the Underground Vaults whose walls, it is said, have absorbed the memories of those who once lived and worked there. This part of the tour is not for the faint-hearted. Cling tightly to the person beside you: we try to leave with the same number as we had on going in! Then relish a complimentary refreshment and tales by candlelight in the exclusive Megget’s Cellar following the walk.
