Descend and Discover Walking Tour in Edinburgh
Explore Vaults in Edinburgh
Witness the unaltered conditions in which real people lived and worked, on The Descend and Discover Tour in Edinburgh.
The vaults were created in the late 18th century when the South Bridge was created. The bridge was built spanning the deep valley to the south of the Royal Mile.
Under its 19 enormous arches, in a catacomb of underground chambers, a community began to thrive.
The vaults were abandoned in the 1830s, but opened again to the public in 1996.
The labyrinth of corridors and chambers you will visit have remained unchanged for two hundred years.
You will also have the opportunity to experience the Interpretation Room and see an audio visual presentation.
Visit this unique attraction and capture special moments in the evolution of the city.
This is NOT a guided tour. Upon check-in, you will receive admission into the vaults and a map for your self-guided tour.
