You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream For Halloween
This Halloween, City of Edinburgh Tours are doing something a little bit different. We are running a special Haunted Graveyard Tour. This tour will take you down the Royal Mile to the Canongate Kirkyard and then back up and across the North Bridge to the Old Calton Burial Ground. You will hear gruesome and terrible stories of Edinburgh’s past. Beware though, at Halloween the spirits walk our world with us and some of them have stories they’d much rather were left untold.
Follow your guide through the Old Town’s twists and turns, through the graveyards and the streets and be cast back to a bygone era. This tour however is absolutely not for the faint hearted. These stories are true, and also truly horrifying. There are in-depth descriptions of torture, witchcraft, murder and even a story from the not-so-distant past. Ghosts are not simply a medieval phenomenon.
This tour is for you if you are a bit of a thrill seeker. It’s for you if you’re a ghost hunter, both amateur or pro. It’s for our skeptics out there too! It’ll have you questioning everything you thought you knew, and then some. The hair on the back of your neck might be permanently on end.
Join us at 8.30pm and 10.30pm on the 26th, 27th 31st October and the 2nd and 3rd of November at our starting point, the Old Police Box on the Royal Mile. It’s located outside Starbucks and the Tron Kirk. This tour is for 18+ and lasts for 90 minutes. Purchase tickets at the link below. This event is certainly not to be missed. If you’re brave enough, of course.
