This guided tour of Edinburgh's underground vaults will plunge you back into the 18th century and straight to the heart of the secret lives of Edinburgh's locals hundreds of years ago!
Accompanied by your guide, you will go to South Bridge at the heart of Edinburgh and descend down into Blair Street's 18th century underground vaults .
These vaults are the deepest in the city and extend across the entire old town. The vaults were brimming with secrets in the late 1700s: they were used as a storage place for illicit goods and as a hiding place for mysteriously-vanishing bodies.
Your guide will teach you more about the living conditions of the people living in these underground vaults at the time. Discover the authentic vaults and learn how they were built, by whom, and for what purpose. Finally, discover how these vaults allowed the old town to be developed and transformed into a flourishing centre for trade.
