Description

Join us on a guided tour of the legendary and eerily macabre Greyfriars Graveyard, a picturesque burial ground full of beautifully carved gothic monuments. Discover the inspirations JK Rowling took for her Harry Potter novels and hear the heartwarming story of how a little dog named Bobby, became one of Edinburgh’s most famous residents. We’ll divulge dark tales of bodysnatching, plague, imprisonment, persecution, murder and the infamous Bloody Mackenzie poltergeist. Learn as we unearth tales of the expired inhabitants and the hidden secrets and surprises of this world-famous 16th century Old Town burial ground. Very entertaining.
