This tour raises the spirits of Halloween as a costumed guide leads the group through Edinburgh’s spookier closes and wynds, before venturing into the haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults.

The Vaults come alive at Halloween – mysteriously cobwebbed, candlelit, and flickering with menace. Visitors are urged to stay close to their guide as the darkness deepens: there’s no telling what hides in the shadows.

The tour will emerge into the warmth of Megget’s cellar, where guests can recover for a moment with a cup of refreshing bat’s blood, and hear more tales of Edinburgh’s haunted past.

Children over 5 years old are welcome – but you’ll need to judge if they’re up to it!

Additional Dates: 27 October 2018, 28 October 2018, 31 October 2018

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Spirits of Halloween are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
