About The Hidden & Haunted Late Night Walking Tour:
Mercat's final late night tour is an adult only occasion that explores the darkest stories of Edinburgh's past. Your guide will focus on infamous events leading to treason, trial and bloody torture.
You'll also hear about the lives of the city's less reputable historical characters, who once stalked the narrow closes.
Later in the tour you will descend into the Blair Street Underground Vaults, an eerie yet fascinating complex of former slums, taverns, storehouses and small businesses dating back to the late 18th century.
These warrens were none too rosy in their heyday, and your guide will be sure to emphasise this as he/she spins a yarn of debauchery, murder and squalor.
As the Hidden & Haunted Walking Tour is conducted on foot, mostly outdoors, it is recommended that you bring appropriate clothing depending on the weather conditions.
Please note that people under the age of 18 are not permitted on this Mercat walking tour.
