You will meet your guide at Mercat Cross, an octagonal monument on the Royal Mile, opposite City Chambers at the scheduled time.
On this tour you will discover:
Blair Street Underground Vaults by candle light: Let not the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile fool you. Underneath the lively city, lies a concealed realm of hidden vaults and secret passageways, once the dark underworld of the city.
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.
You will be touring the Blair Street Vaults, built under the 19 stone arches of the South Bridge constructed in the late 18th century where you can explore the subterranean chambers with your guide and hear bone-chilling stories.
The tour ends in the vault’s interpretation room.

Tour Guide made it very entertaining. Would recommend this Tour to others....
The tour I thought what have been a bit more extensive than it was. Not much ground was covered. Basically tour is of a small area of the underground street. It was still fun...
