Attraction Information

The award winning Cadies and Witchery Tours are an excellent way for brave families to spend an evening getting to know the darker side of the city!

Choose from a selection of funny and frightening guided evening tours: The Witchery Ghosts and Gore Tour during the Summer, and The Witchery Murder and Mystery Tour available all year round!

Witchever you choose (see what they did there) you're in for a treat as your undead guide shows you the spooky underbelly of Edinburgh! Beware of their famous 'jumper-ooters' who could be lurking in every shadow…

Whilst light-hearted and whimsical the tours have a strong educational base and as such cover pretty ghastly subjects like witchcraft, grave robbing, plague and torture in significant detail: so give it careful consideration before choosing to take nervous sorts along!

That said they have a strong family following and they report that most kids enjoy the chills as much as the grown-ups: the tour is suitable for 6+. You take part at your own risk however so no crying to the exorcists if you get too scared!

The April through August Ghosts and Gore Tour is a fully wheelchair accessible route.
