Horror and humour have always gone well together, and the Edinburgh Dungeon exploits that to it’s fullest. Gallows, cannibals, mirror rooms… this is a horror house that wants you experice the chills without getting bogged down in a B-Grade plot. The actors are all terrific, and portray villains out of Scotland’s history. For a short experience, it packs quite the punch. We won’t spoil what awaits you here, but it is totally worth it. Make sure you come as a group though, this is not something you want to ejoy alone. The shop offers some neat souvenirs.

Where do I start with the Edinburgh Dungeon. The staff were wonderful and the wait was most definitely worth it. The whole experience provided a great balance of fright and comedy. The tour was very well laid out and the actors/actresses played the or parts extremely well. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody travelling to Edinburgh for a short or long stay.
If you like history shows then this is your thing. Incredible place to visit and wonderful staff. The entire day was spent mesmerising at the items and story’s on offer. Truly magnificent day for all the family and kids. Try this if you are any where near the area to visit while in Edinburgh. Truly marvellous and magnificent and can’t rate highly enough. Come visit even for the half day as it will be well worth your while. Thank you to everyone who made the day special for my elderly mother and our little boy. Jack enjoyed himself so much and my mother wants to visit again next year please. On that note do you do any seasonal admission tickets perhaps? This may be a way to invite more tourists in and keep them coming back. Just a thought and an idea. Thank again Mandy Taylor
Really enjoyed this. Have been twice,first time was far better than the second as there was only a small group and it felt very personal. In future I would try to make sure it was off season as I would definitely go again. People played their parts very well and added to the experience greatly.
Went there twice with my boyfriend and his family. Actors are great and it's really interesting to learn more about the city and the old Edinburgh. It's a bit scary sometimes which add to the atmosphere and we really liked it. Recommend this place for English speaker as it's only in English (with a strong Scottish accent :P). Will be back again
Absolutely loved my time in the dungeon, even when my blue hair got me chosen as a witch by the judge! The online booking was way cheaper than the walk in which was a bonus. The actors were spot on. The rides are optional- I stayed back just after the seance and the drop ride due to ongoing neck problems but this didn't deter from the overall enjoyability. Would highly recommend paying the dungeon a visit.
