The Edinburgh Dungeon (Edinburgh) Reviews
Description:Take a 1.5 hour tour through the dungeon, a thrill like no other attraction.
Newest Review: ... need help. I personally do not feel this attraction is ideal for those with mobility issues. We had a 2 for 1 voucher with us and I personally wouldn't visit without one as I feel £16.20 is very expensive for one person. We split the cost and also purchased a guide book which was well worth the £3.00. The 'tours' leave the reception area every 10 minutes or so and we waited the maximum time. ... more

Be scared out of your wits and enjoy a short but frightening water ride through the edinburgh dungeons a must see attraction on a trip to edinburgh. The dungeons is a stones throw away from mary kings close and so to view both on the same day is a must to have a truely edinburgh haunting day. Costly to get into the dungeon, but students you get a discount and there are plenty of leaflets about that give you discounts also especially in hotel lobbys so look about. Walking into the court room you are sat down, and accusations are given out to various members of the crowd about witchcraft basically to start building up a story for people. Its fun and ...

Edinburgh dungeons is in the city centre just a stones throw away from the main railway station and it markets itself as a feast of fun with history's horrible bits and it is an entertaining place to visit to learn about Edinburgh's murky past. The guided tour of the dungeons takes you through hundreds of years of Scottish history and actors in period dress bring the past to life. Edinburgh certainly has a murky past with witchcraft, body snatchers and many ghosts within the city. The first part of the tour involves a witchcraft trial, I was the one selected to stand in the dock while an actor boomed accusations at me and I was then sentenced to death. There ...

For those of you who love audience participation experiences at then all you need to know is that this place is absolutely perfect for you from start to finish. However I felt quite sullied by the whole experience, the long queues, the high entry prices, the fact that I couldn't leave my bag anywhere and my fiance nearly decked an employee (actually, that was the high point). We bought our tickets at the Tourist Information Centre which gave us a discount of £5 per person and there were two of us, so with £10 off we paid £19.90 for our run through the dungeon. Now this did include priority (fast track) entry to the dungeon, considering it took us ... Read the complete review
