Visit Edinburgh’s Haunted Underground Vaults, hidden under the South Bridge in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Infamous, scary!

Hear tales of how the poor and unfortunate lived in these former slums. Explore these dimly lit vaults, once the haunt of criminals, body snatchers, and witches alike!

On this late-night terror-filled tour you will first be taken to our medieval torture exhibition. See macabre instruments from the Nuremberg and Bamberg Castles in Germany. These fascinating but gruesome artifacts date back to the late 1500s and early 1600s.

Then you’ll be taken by our expert guide through our paranormally active and haunted underground vaults dating back to the 1700s. Renowned as the world’s scariest place. Seriously Frightening and definitely not for the faint-hearted!

We are the only tour company that owns its own vaults, having exclusive use of them. Apart from lighting, our vaults have remained mostly unchanged since they were built in the 1700s.
