Gory Stories: The Kids Tour Breaks

Tales of stinking streets, terrible tortures and ghostly goings-on. A daytime tour for kids that will take you to some of the city’s most horrible haunts including a visit to the famous Blair Street Underground Vaults. You’ll hear all about the creepy characters lurking in the past and the hideous real history of how people lived in 19th century Edinburgh. As you walk this city built on witch trials, body snatching and a gruesome past of torture, your expert guide will take you to the places where history lives. To start, you’ll visit the winding closes of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Learn the meaning of gardyloo and hope you never hear it, grimace at the tales of Scottish witches and find out what treasure could be found buried in a 19th century graveyard (clue: it’s not gold and shiny). You’ll even hear what school children once packed in their school bags on one eventful day. Hear what jobs were available for younger members of society and get a glimpse at what a family ‘home’ might look like. You’ll finish your excursion beneath the streets in the Blair Street Underground Vaults, once frequented by some of Edinburgh’s less appealing characters. And possibly still is…
