Enjoy this exclusive experience, which will take you to the Underground Vaults of Edinburgh and allow you to hear tales that not many know of!
This unique tour is not for the faint-hearted but will take you on a fascinating journey through the most extensive set of Underground Vaults open to the public in Edinburgh. The experience is chilling with many jaw dropping tales to be told by your expert guide.
A great bridge was built spanning the deep valley to the south of the Royal Mile, which created the Underground Vaults in the late 18th Century. Under its 19 enormous arches, in a catacomb of underground chambers, a community began to thrive. Trades, first legal and then illicit, flourished and in hard times there was nothing that couldn’t be bought or sold for a purse of gold!
The Underground Vaults were abandoned by the 1830’s and only opened again to the public in 1996. The labyrinth of corridors and chambers you visit remain unchanged from two hundred years ago. This is a unique experience that will let you capture a very special moment in the evolution of Edinburgh.
