Description

Candlelit and dark as the Devil’s heart, the largest part of the Old Town’s infamous underground vaults dates back to the 1700s. Your host will guide you through these former slum dwellings of the poor and destitute – still in their original condition. Have your primal fears brought to the surface as you hear tales of paranormal activity, witchcraft, unexplained occurrences and the ghostly inhabitants that still haunt these vaults. Experience the 'cursed' stone circle and our medieval torture exhibition. Once experienced, never forgotten. Be afraid, be very very afraid!!

Fab tour. Our guide Fraser was full of passion, humour and knowledge and really made it an excellent experience.

This was a great tour! Amy, our tour guide, was obviously very knowledgeable but was engaging with the tour and made it very easy and enjoyable! Great facts and sights, this was our 13 year old daughter's highlight of The Fringe!
