See all the gruesome, ghostly and downright gross bits of Edinburgh with Mercat Tours. As well as a highly accredited team of guides to bring the streets to life, it’s got that YUCK factor which kids just love!
The best way to explore a new place is on foot so take to the streets and spot some of the most horrible haunts in the city. Your guides will show you where the alleys used to run with sewage, where witch trials took place and where ghosts still supposedly stalk the streets..!
As well as the grisly bits, expect to hear stories of how regular people lived in Old Edinburgh. You’ll see what a standard family home would have looked like and even explore the famous Blair Street Underground Vaults.
