Discover the stranger side of Edinburgh on a walk through its most famous graveyard. Explore how Edinburgh’s grisly history shaped the city today: how the medical school changed the landscape of cemeteries, how public hangings used to be for public entertainment, and how Edinburgh’s mysterious stories even helped to inspire Harry Potter. From serial killers, ghosts and even a loyal dog, Greyfriars Kirkyard is the heart of Edinburgh’s gruesome past.
This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Edinburgh’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Edinburgh. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Edinburgh of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Edinburgh's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!
Our private tours run between 8:00AM and 7:00PM Edinburgh time. Please send us a message if you would like to request a specific date and time.
