Mercat Tours

Every street in Edinburgh has a story to tell. On Mercat Tours’ Ghosts, Gore and Grime tour, you’ll hear them all. Expect creepy characters, terrible torture and all-things-gruesome. But because it’s aimed especially at younger audiences, there’s no risk of nightmares later.

You’ll visit some of the city’s most horrible haunts, including Blair Street’s infamous Underground Vaults – according to local legend there are ghouls galore down there. Mwahahahaha!

The kids’ tour happens in the daytime, making it frightfully good for anyone over five, but it’s just as entertaining for teenagers. Everyone on the tour gets a small gift to take home.
