All tours last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and leave from the "Tree of the Dead" located outside St Giles Cathedral on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Each guide is a local expert on Edinburgh's fascinating and horrifying history, with their own unique style and delivery so no two tours are ever the same. Combining history, humour and horror, this guided walking tour is the very best of our Underground City of the Dead and Haunted Graveyard Tours. First, you descend into a section of the legendary Underground City, vaults beneath the city's cobblestones which were hidden for centuries and recently unsealed. This is where you enter the most haunted section of the vaults, Damnation Alley, said to be stalked by a malevolent presence known as the South Bridge Entity. Then you will enter Greyfriars Kirkyard, the world's most haunted site! The tour ends inside the Covenantor's Prison, a locked section of a 16th Century walled cemetery. Thought to be the world's first concentration camp, this is the lair of the 'Mackenzie Poltergeist', the best documented supernatural case of all time. Since City of the Dead has the only access to the Prison, we have been able to record all of the 'attacks' on visitors there. So far there have been over 900 - including 180 people who have been knocked unconscious. You survive this one and you’ll need a couple of stiff drinks. But that’s ok. We finish next to a bar. Can cause physical and mental distress. You join us at your own risk.
