Why Try The Hidden & Haunted Late Night Walking Tour?

• Professional and passionate guides. | • Hear tales of murder, prostitution and torture. | • The darkest tales from Edinburgh's past.

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.
