This vaults tour takes you beneath the streets of Edinburgh's Old Town into a dimly lit space that many considered to be haunted.

Inside the vaults you’ll learn how they’ve been used over the years and the living conditions endured by the poor and homeless residents who frequented them. The darker side of Edinburgh's history will unfold as you wander through the candle-lit underground area.
