If you’re interested in the supernatural then don’t miss this 1-hour haunted history bus tour of Edinburgh. On a themed double-decker bus, you’ll delve into Edinburgh’s dark history as you pass top Edinburgh attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, Grassmarket, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Plus, you’ll step off the bus for a short walk around Greyfriars Church, reputed to be Edinburgh’s most-haunted cemetery.

What to Expect
Enjoy a terrifying tour around the World's most haunted city aboard the custom-fitted double-deck bus! Tours last for one hour and depart twice each evening from the city-center Waverley Bridge, Bus Stop (WY).  
On board, your live host will entertain you with tales of Edinburgh's dark history as you tour passes many historic sites. These include Edinburgh Castle, and tales of it's Ghost Piper, the historic Grassmarket, that was the site of many public executions, and the Palace of Holyrood House, once home to Mary Queen of Scots and site of a cold-blooded murder! 

You will hear tales of the Infamous Body-Snatchers Burke and Hare as you travel through the dim-lit, narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Town and, in the more salubrious surroundings of the New Town, learn of the real Edinburgh character who played inspiration to Robert Luis Stevenson's tale - Jekyll and Hyde. 
Step into the afterlife at Greyfriars Kirkyard as your guide takes you on a short walk into one of the World's most haunted graveyards in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle! 

During this bus tour, you will travel through the city on comfort onboard and wheelchair accessible, Haunted History Bus. Over two floors, custom designed vehicle is perfect for enjoying views of the city at night and fully equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment which will bring history alive before your very eyes!
