The Edinburgh Dungeon

Fear is a funny thing...

The Edinburgh Dungeon is the ultimate underground immersive journey through Edinburgh’s darkest history. Combining live actor shows, 360 degree sets, thrilling rides and spectacular special effects, see 1000 years of Scottish and Edinburgh history brought to life. Sometimes scary, often fun, whichever way, it’s not looking good for your underwear!
We love it. We know you will too. Here's why:

  • Full on 360 degree theatrical sets
  • Professional cast of 30 actors
  • State-of-the-art theming and special effects
  • Thrilling underground rides
  • Laughs, screams and cutting edge storytelling
  • Dark atmosphere, gallows humour, scary fun surprises

Tours leave every 15 minutes apart and last approximately 70 minutes. Guided by a full cast of actors, you and your friends will move from show to show exploring different chapters from Scotland’s dark history, minus the boring bits!

Come face-to-face with sinister characters from Mary Queen of Scots to murderous twosome Burke and Hare, Scottish cannibal Sawney Bean and Edinburgh’s baddest witch, Agnes Finnie. Be judged for your crimes in a 17th century courtroom or experience a dissection in Dr Robert Knox’s anatomy theatre... only the brave will survive!
