The World Famous Underground Ghost Tour

803 reviews
At street level, Edinburgh is a peaceful and pretty city—but the subterranean tunnels below tell an entirely different story. On this ghostly walking tour, explore historic sites including Greyfriars Kirkyard and St. Giles’ Cathedral with your enthusiastic guide, and hear chilling tales of murder and revenge. Delve down into underground caverns normally closed to the public, and learn of Edinburgh’s grim and gruesome past.

Had such a wonderful day out at the botanic gardens with my partner, her sister and their little one. The grounds are absolutely wonderful. A great family day out with stimulating things on hand for the grown ups and plenty of space to play and explore for kids

We love visiting the Botanics throughout the year and seeing the changes in the plants and trees. Despite being one of the few places open to visit during lockdown it never seems too crowded for comfort.

After driving a considerable distance and paying to park, despite booking tickets for a family of four we were welcomed by a bell ringing woman who immediately told us to go home due to a bit of unexpected windy weather. This was a complete waste of money and time, since we went all the way to look at some railings! The conclusion is if it’s raining don’t go because it’s miserable and if it’s windy don’t go since you will get thrown out due to the imminent threat of a falling pine cone! After my advanced calculations, in Edinburgh it will leave around 2 days a year which this garden would be suitable to visit! In summary don’t bother, I won’t be going back!

The ligh show was quite good. However, there were far too many people let it and I did not feel comfortable. It was difficult to keep social distance in some points of the trail. Not everyone was wearing a mask as we were outside but it was too crowded to feel comfortable around those people. I even felt rushed before the cathedral of lights when I was told by a member of staff to "take my photo as quickly as you can". This could be avoided it you did not let in too many people.. It could be organised better.
