Haunted Vaults and Graveyard Walking Tour in Edinburgh

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Your knowledgeable guide takes you to Greyfriar's Kirkyard, home of the famous Greyfriar's 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, sending chills down many a reader's spine.

Then on to the infamous and haunted Niddry Street underground vaults, most haunted place in Edinburgh and probably one of the scariest in the world! Once home to the destitute, prostitutes, criminals, witches and a hell-fire club, and is possessed by something evil that awaits you
  • Walk Edinburgh’s haunted streets, vaults, and graveyards by night
  • Hear terrifying tales of gruesome deaths—and returns from the grave
  • Shiver at the ghostly horrors of Greyfriars Kirkyard
  • Brave the haunted vault below the city at Niddry Street Vaults
What to Expect
As night falls across Scotland’s ancient capital, greet your guide and embark on an adults-only journey through the city’s sinister past. Learn the grim history of Greyfriars Kirkyard, where quiet and unquiet souls have rested since the 16th century, and gothic monuments rear against the gloomy sky. Walk on through the darkening night to the Niddry Street Vaults that stretch below the city. Once home to witches, criminals, the destitute, and a hellfire club—and rumored to be the hunting ground of serial killers Burke and Hare—these echoing cellars are now the site of regular paranormal happenings. Something evil awaits in the Haunted Vault. Be warned!

My son and I were really looking forward to this tour as part of our visit to Edinburgh over the Christmas period. We both found the tour quite boring, with lots of walking in between lots of nothingness to look at. The tour guide was matter of fact and not very entertaining

Our tour guide was Ewan, he was very funny and knew his stuff! The vaults are very interesting but if you’re claustrophobic I would advise against it, the stories were quite scary and made me want to learn more about them...
