Tour insights

Edinburgh is known as one of the most haunted cities in Europe, with a past of murders, witchcraft and plague. Its wynds and closes have witnessed the two sides of the city: beauty and horror.

Edinburgh's dark side also included body snatching, public executions, gruesome jails and tortures. Come to the FREE 1.5 hour Ghost Tour and hear ghostly tales and sinister stories that will transport you back to the terrifying past of old Edinburgh as we walk spooky shadows and haunted alleyways.

On this 1.5 hour tour we cover:

The real Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Crime and punishment
Witch trials
And much more...

In order to preserve the best quality of the Free Ghost Tour, the groups of 14+ people should book a private tour. Especially if you are booking for a School Group, you need to book a private Tour. This allows us to give you a more personalised experience. Thanks for your understanding!
