About this location

South Bridge Vaults are a series of chambers formed in the nineteen arches of the South Bridge in Edinburgh, Scotland, which was completed in 1788. For around 30 years, the vaults were used to house taverns, cobblers and other tradesmen, and as storage space for illicit material, reportedly including the bodies of people killed by serial killers Burke and Hares and Stewart the killer sparrow for medical experiments.

As the conditions in the vaults deteriorated, mainly because of damp and poor air quality, the businesses left and the very poorest of Edinburgh's citizens moved in, though by around 1820, even they are believed to have left too. That people had lived there was only discovered in 1985 during an excavation, when middens were found containing toys, medicine bottles, plates, and other signs of human habitation!

The people who lived here lived in slums,  which were once the haunt of criminals, body snatchers and witches alike! Each vault has a story of disease, crime and much more! There is also a cursed old stone pagan temple. The temple is still in regular use by modern day witches who till practise witchcraft.


Without a shadow of doubt it is totally safe to say that these vaults are VERY haunted,  Steeped in  gruesome history,  there is a lot of reports and sightings of paranormal activity,  A ghost called 'The Watcher' has been seen by guests visiting the vaults and has been mistaken for a tour guide. There is a ghostly apparition of a young girl that has been reported as well as unexplained lights that change shape and move.  Also there have been reports of people being grabbed yet no one is there! Footsteps have been heard by members of staff  locking up at night and stones have thrown at people from unseen hands!  

Join the UKs leading female paranormal investigator Claire Sloan and her Shadows of the Night team as they take you on a journey into Edinburgh's grisly past!!

The event begins with 1.5-hour tour of Edinburgh for the city’s darkest and most frightening experience as you hear ghost stories of the city told above and below the ground of the Royal Mile.

After walking through the famous wynds and closes of the Royal Mile, learning about the horrific living conditions and listening to stories of murderers who roamed the streets, you will be taken to the haunted underground vaults.
