The scariest and notoriously most haunted underground location in Edinburgh!

Explore our haunted underground vaults dating back to 1700s, where the poor and destitute once lived alongside the criminal underworld, thieves, and witches who practiced there. A journey into the dark side of old Edinburgh's history. You will feel and sense the terrible slum conditions where the poor and destitute once stayed, in an underground area with no natural lighting, water or sanitation.

Tours includes a visit to our medieval torture museum, legendary haunted vault, demonised, old, stone-circled pagan temple, and see a modern witchcraft temple used up until three years ago.

The Vaults Tour
Visit the infamous vaults hidden under the South Bridge in Edinburgh’s Old Town. Hear tales of how the poor and unfortunate lived in these former slums. Explore these dimly lit vaults, once the haunt of criminals, body snatchers and witches alike!
Each vault has stories of crime, disease and death and lots more, with which your guide shall enlighten you with all the gory details. You will see a genuine witchcraft temple, recently used by the “Source Coven of the Blue Dragon” and you will enter their former temple, and learn why it was no longer safe for them to practise their craft in that vault. DARE you step inside the infamous stone circle?

Haunted Vaults Tour
Dark as the Devil’s heart, visit our haunted underground vaults that date back to the 1700s. The guide will enlighten you to the dark history of these former slum dwellings, home to the poor and destitute as well as a criminal underworld. Hear tales of the paranormal activity and ghostly apparitions that are said to haunt these vaults. Once experienced, never forgotten.

The Ghost & Torture Tour
Our costumed guide takes you around some of the Old Town’s cobbled streets dispensing the history of the dark characters that used to roam them. Then you’ll enter our medieval torture exhibition with instruments from Nuremberg and Bamberg castles in Germany dating back to the 1500s and 1600s. Finally you’ll be guided through our haunted underground vaults to see our old stone circle Pagan temple, a recently working witchcraft temple and our infamous haunted Vault. Be afraid, be very afraid!

The Terror Tour
First you’ll be taken to our medieval torture exhibition to see instruments from the Nuremberg and Bamberg Castles in Germany, dating back to the late 1500s and early 1600s. Then you’ll be guided through our paranormally active and haunted underground vaults dating back to the 1700s. Renowned as the world’s scariest place. Frightening! *For over 18s only

The Vaults & Graveyard Tour
Edinburgh’s Old Town is steeped in Folklore, Legends & Myths, and an abundance of evil.
Your guide shall take you to Greyfriars Graveyard, home of the famous Greyfriars Bobby – nice dog – who had cocked his leg where rotting corpses lay below and whose names were made famous in many novels and history books, and sent chills down many a reader. Then on to the infamous and haunted Niddry Street underground vaults, probably the scariest place in the world! Once home to the destitute, prostitutes, criminals, witches and a hellfire club, and is possessed by something evil that awaits you. Please wear stout footwear, and this tour is not suitable for the under 16s or those of a nervous disposition. You have been warned!!!
