The Edinburgh Dungeon

The Edinburgh Dungeon

Fear is a funny thing...

The Edinburgh Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back to the city’s most perilous past. See, hear, feel and (ahem) smell the chillingly amusing characters of the ‘bad old days’ as they come to life before you. Will you lose yourself in fear or in mirth? Whichever way, it’s not looking good for your underwear.

We love it. We know you will too. Here's why:

  • Full on 360 sets with gripping storytelling
  • 11 actor-led shows with the finest and funniest of Scottish acting talent
  • State-of-the-art theming and special effects
  • Two awesome underground rides
  • Laughs, screams and cutting edge storytelling

We're the black comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very very funny.

The Edinburgh Dungeon is an 80-minute journey through centuries of Scotland 's darkest history. Tours leave around ten minutes apart and, guided by a full cast of actors, you and your companions then move from show to show. You will laugh and scream as you encounter gripping storytelling, exciting rides and thrilling special effects.

It's based on real history and legend (minus the boring bits) where you come face-to-face with sinister characters from Scotland's gruesome past, including murderous twosome Burke and Hare and Scottish legend Sawney Bean. Experience the disastrous effects of the plague in Street of Sorrows, the fearsome torture chamber and sense the ghostly presence of the Green Lady in 1715 Old Craig House.
