Full Description

This tour of the Edinburgh Vaults is certainly not for the faint hearted.  The vaults have lain empty for almost 200 years; they housed a number of businesses such as legal practices, cobblers and some more illicit characters.  This tour is packed with tales of the lives of people working and living here.

Your guide brings the jaw dropping tales to life with humour and passion, guiding you through the labyrinth of corridors and chambers.
