Condemned – Halloween Tours

Join us this Halloween for the return of 2016 sell out tour Condemned, a late night one hour tour experience.

Travel back to a time when Mary King’s Close was open to the skies. Fear and suspicion lurked around every corner, and witch trials were a regular occurrence. Hear how the inhabitants of Mary King’s Close and the surrounding streets were implicated in witchcraft, and the fate that befell them.

Condemned offers a unique insight into Edinburgh’s fascinating history with the occult, telling the stories of its infamous accomplices and most ardent opponents. Join a character guide on a journey through Scottish history, documenting how and why attitudes changed over time. Make your way into the 18th century and see how the Enlightenment introduced new ways of thinking, changing perceptions and bringing relief to those who would have once have hidden behind closed doors.

Witch pricker


With themes of witchcraft being explored more and more in popular culture such as Outlander, Condemned will challenge perceptions and go beyond what we believe to be true.

This Halloween, who will you believe and who will you condemn?
