Tours and Tickets by City of Edinburgh Tours
The World Famous Underground Ghost Tour
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.

Fright Night Tour
See a different side of Edinburgh on this ghost tour of the city's medieval Old Town. Discover hidden alleyways and lanes as your guide (in period costume) recounts sinister tales of the city's dark past, with stories of murderers, witches, and grave robbers. Visit a reportedly haunted graveyard and go underground to the South Bridge Vaults where people once lived and worked—and, more gruesomely, bodysnatchers stole corpses.

We booked onto the 3.15 tour with Agnes the witch. It was a fab tour and Agnes told the history very well. She was funny, scary and informative. Well worth the £12 ticket price for an hours tour consisting of outside and underground too. Definitely worth doing.

What a fantastic tour! Our 10 year old absolutely loved it and this was 100% down to the guide Jame Douglas! He was perfectly hilarious, scary and knowledgeable. An absolute master at story telling and crowd participation. We would fully recommend anyone visiting Edinburgh to take one of these tours.…
