While the state-of-the-art interactive exhibitions and spooky boat ride are primarily designed to scare and entertain at the same time, the Dungeon also manages to offer some real historical education, highlighting the advances in science and technology over the centuries and offering a dramatised account of the more gruesome episodes in Edinburgh's long history.

The Edinburgh Dungeon is a family-friendly attraction with a bit of everything from humorous lines delivered by live actors to lifelike exhibits which can be gruesome and morbid.

  • Anatomy Theatre
  • Haunted Labyrinth
  • Judgement Of Sinners exhibit
  • Clan Wars exhibit
  • Mary King's Ghost and vampires
  • The Cave of Sawney Bean
