The Double Dead Walking Tour

The Underground Vaults

“ABSORBING stories on an INTRIGUING tour” – Mysterious Journeys, Travel Channel

The worst of both possible worlds.   This tour goes into two of the most haunted places on the planet – the South Bridge Vaults AND the Covenanter’s Prison in Greyfriars Graveyard.

You survive this one and you’ll need a couple of stiff drinks.   But that’s ok.   We finish next to a bar.


Can cause genuine physical and mental distress.  You join this walk at your own risk.
