Customer reviews


You will meet your guide at Mercat Cross, an octagonal monument on the Royal Mile, opposite City Chambers.

On this tour you will discover:

Blair Street Underground Vaults by candle light: For decades the vaults were used to house taverns, cobblers and other tradesmen but when the businesses abandoned the space, the poorest citizens of Edinburgh populated the dark, damp spaces of the vaults. Crimes including robbery and murder soon plagued the vaults. The infamous serial killer duo Burke and Hare, who sold corpses to medical schools, are rumoured to have hunted for victims in the vaults and even stored some of the bodies there.

Written translations available on request (Fr, Ger, It, Sp, Rus).

The tour ends in the vault’s interpretation room.
