This Halloween tour is only for the steely-willed: it takes serious nerve to keep your cool in the gloom, among the spirits of Halloween.

From the damp medieval streets to the dark caverns beneath, the tour will descend into the Blair Street Underground Vaults. Cobwebs hang from every surface, dim figures move in the near-darkness. The candlelight hardly helps, throwing long shadows against the walls, giving little more comfort than a small pool of light… It’s a dark, unsettling experience.

This is a strictly adults-only tour, so expect the worst tales of misdeeds, the goriest details, the most ghoulish happenings.

Additional Dates: 27 October 2018, 31 October 2018

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