It's Halloween! We thought it might be worth to take you around the city and tell you how was Edinburgh in the past.

Edinburgh is known to be the spookiest city in the UK, and maybe in Europe. And no wonder why. Its Medieval Old Town hides thousands of vaults, graves and wicked secrets that may scare you to death. Cannibals, murderers, torturers and other gory stories are waiting for you.
