My friend and I booked for both vaults and graveyard ghost tour and our tour guide was very funny, theatrical and shows a lot of enthusiasm when telling the history!
Your tour begins at a designated meeting point in Edinburgh Old Town. Greet your guide and receive an overview of Edinburgh’s rich history. After two stops above ground, descend to South Bridge Vaults and explore the tunnels by candlelight.
Learn about how the vaults came into fruition and listen to spine-chilling tales of death, disease, and body snatching by the infamous Burke and Hare. Plus, see relics abandoned by the former residents of the vaults.
The tour concludes in the Discovery Room. Here you can gain access to exhibits containing further information on the South Bridge Vaults.
