Edinburgh’s Haunted History
With Edinburgh’s dark and horrid past it’s no wonder this stunning historic city has become known for it’s haunting’s. Edinburgh offers plenty of hourly ghost walks around the city, but have you ever fancied actually ghost hunting in some of Edinburgh’s most haunted locations?!
In 1985 the Edinburgh Vaults were excavated, revealing a labyrinth of vaulted rooms and dwelling spaces with a dark, claustrophobic and damp atmosphere. Many haunted experiences have occurred and visitors brave enough to enter The Vaults have left with scratches and scary experiences. Reports of nasty entities are common place after visiting Niddry Street. It is no surprise that the Edinburgh Vaults have become world famous for being one of the most haunted locations. If you fancy just booking on to The Vaults – Book Now!
The Real Mary Kings Close, now a museum, is buried deep beneath Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Hidden streets that remain frozen in the 17th Century. The Street (or Close) is literally under buildings in the old town and contains cobbled streets, rooms and vaults. Street lamps, mannequins and claustrophobic dark areas make this a location you will never forget!
The close has had a reputation for haunting’ since at least the 17th century. Legends say that the haunting’s originated with plague victims being quarantined and left to die in the close or with their bodies being used to build the walls. Not many people have the “pleasure” of entering the Close overnight and the Close is rarely investigated. If you are interested in just the Mary King’s Close Ghost Hunt – please check the individual listing for further details.
This listing is to book onto both ghost hunts in Edinburgh….

Ghost Hunt Weekend Edinburgh
Haunted Evenings will be heading up a gruesome twosome at two of Edinburgh’s finest Haunted Locations. On Night one (Friday) you will start your weekend by meeting the team outside the infamous Niddry Street Vaults. On entering, all guests will have the chance to familiarise themselves to these dark damp eerie Vaults, after a welcome briefing, before being split down into small groups to conduct vigils inside the different vaulted rooms. Each vault seems to carry a different feel, some more intense than others. It’s quite common to feel you’re being followed and we advise you only go off on you’re own if you’re truly brave enough!
On night Two of our Ghost Hunt Weekend Edinburgh, the team will give you a warm welcome inside the visitor centre that is above Mary King’s Close. The team will then take you down into the hidden buried street below the Royal Mile. Teams will be split down, once you’ve got your bearings, to carry out various vigils to see who haunts here. Please note that on our Mary Kings Close Ghost Hunting event, no Ouija boards/glass work/pendulums are allowed by request of the location management…but don’t worry! The team have an abundance of equipment for you all to use on the location. This is one fascinating location in Edinburgh and a privilege to have exclusive overnight access.
