The Edinburgh Dungeon is an 80 minute journey through 1000 years of Scotland's horrible history. Tours leave around 10 minutes apart and guided by a full cast of actors, you and your companions then move from show to show. You will laugh and scream as you encounter gripping storytelling, exciting rides and thrilling special effects. It's based on real history and legend (minus the boring bits) where you come face-to-face with sinister characters from Scotland's gruesome past, including murderous twosome Burke and Hare and the Scottish Legend Sawney Bean. Experience the disastrous effects of the plague in Street of Sorrows, the fearsome torture chamber and even a mysterious Boat Ride through the Caves of Galloway.

It's a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full on authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you'll pass through the Caves of Galloway, plague-ravaged closes, the fearsome torture chamber... and might even get a hanging for your crimes on our Drop Dead ride. Believe us, it's better than a sightseeing or boring museum tour of Edinburgh.
