"UNDERGROUND" Underground Tours Tip by BerniShand

Underground Tours, Edinburgh: 4 reviews and 10 photos


Edinburgh is a many layered city, space was at a premium so after building up as far as possible the city went down underground

as you may imagine underground living was not for the great and the good, but for the lowest of the low, the accommodation was dark and damp, and as the seepage from above was not just of water disease was rife

it is possible to see some sections of this underground city, there are companies offering tours of the hidden streets, the one we took with Auld Reekie tours was very short on social history content and high on `paranormal` stories [more about this in the next tip], next time we visit we intend to do a diferent one

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
