The Edinburgh Dungeon: A Thrilling Attraction
The Edinburgh Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you back to the city’s most perilous past. See, hear and (ahem) smell the chillingly amusing characters as they are brought to life before you. Will you lose yourself in fear or mirth? Whichever way, it’s not looking good for your underwear.
Sail the caverns of Galloway in search of the cannibal Sawney Bean – but stay afloat, for the catch of the day is you! Meet Burke & Hare – they’ve been keeping the population of Edinburgh down since 1832. And finally, just opened, get witch or die tryin’ on the Witch Hunt for the electrifying Agnes Finnie. Accuse or be accused – get in first!
With 11 live action shows and two underground rides, it’s so much fun it’s scary. Visit thedungeons.com/Edinburgh
