Gory Stories - Halloween for Kids

About Gory Stories - Halloween for Kids

Gory Stories is a family tour, suitable for children over five years of age.

Those on the tour will discover some horrible haunts, including Mercat Tour’s famous Blair Street Underground Vault, a place that remains hidden from daylight and was once frequented by some of Edinburgh’s less appealing characters. They will hear tales of witches, punishment and unruly school kids, and about the truth behind a traditional Scottish Halloween – they may even discover some ‘neeps lanterns’ along the way. Every child on the tour will receive a special Halloween gift to take home – all treats and no tricks!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Gory Stories - Halloween for Kids are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
