The Edinburgh Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious fun and it’s sometimes a bit scary.

We love it. We know you will too. Here’s why:

  • 11 actor led shows with the finest and funniest of Scottish acting talent
  • State of the art theming and special effects
  • Two awesome underground rides
  • Laughs, screams and cutting edge storytelling
  • We’re the black comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very very funny.


The Edinburgh Dungeon is an 80 minute journey through 1000 years of Scotland ‘s horrible history. Tours leave around 10 minutes apart and guided by a full cast of actors, you and your companions then move from show to show. You will laugh and scream as you encounter gripping storytelling, exciting rides and thrilling special effects. It’s based on real history and legend (minus the boring bits) where you come face-to-face with sinister characters from Scotland’s gruesome past, including murderous twosome Burke and Hare and Scotland’s Warrior Hero William Wallace. Experience the disastrous effects of the plague in Street of Sorrows, the fearsome torture chamber and the Legend of Sawney Bean.

It’s a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full on authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you’ll pass through the Caves of Galloway, plague-ravaged closes, the fearsome torture chamber… and witness the aftermath of William Wallace’s execution. Believe us, it’s better than a sightseeing or boring museum tour of Edinburgh.
