Venture into Edinburgh's eerie past with this evening underground audio tour, perfect for anyone intrigued by the city's ghostly legends. Explore at your own pace, listening to tales of mystery and the supernatural that echo through the cobblestone streets and beneath them in the hidden vaults. Begin the journey at the infamous Edinburgh Vaults, where whispered stories of old merchants, the destitute, and nefarious characters set the scene for an evening shrouded in darkness. From there, meander along the Royal Mile, letting the audio guide lead through shadowy closes and past the historic St Giles' Cathedral and John Knox House, blending history with the thrill of the unknown. The route ends at Greyfriars Kirkyard, a graveyard with tales of loyalty beyond death, best experienced as twilight descends on the city. Along the way, don't miss Victoria Street's colorful facades, a source of inspiration for magical worlds, and the stately Palace of Holyroodhouse, which contrasts the grim and the grandeur of this ancient city. The night will be memorable, with highlights such as the loyal Greyfriars Bobby and the eerie quiet of Greyfriars Kirkyard, providing a spine-chilling conclusion to this adventure.
