The Edinburgh Dungeon invites you to delve into the capital's most blood-curdling history. Live actors, two hair-raising rides, shows and special effects transport you back to those black, bleak times...are you brave enough?

Burke & Hare: The Business of Murder

Edge your way through the darkness and tombstones of the murky burial ground and find yourself in the very gravest of situations. Feel the hairs rise on your neck and a chill run down your spine as two shadows move menacingly through the gloom...will you be Burke and Hare's next donation to the medical profession?
