Edinburgh Halloween 2023

Edinburgh Halloween 2023

Halloween is such an enjoyable time of the year for both friends and family to enjoy. This spooky holiday was modernised from the ancient Celtic festival, Samhuinn, which marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. 🎃

Edinburgh is known to be one of the spookiest cities in the UK with lots fun and historical activities to be found. 👻

Stuck for choice? Well, read on and find out what our top suggestions to do in Edinburgh this Halloween are:

Edinburgh Dungeons ⛓️

We couldn’t start our Edinburgh Halloween list off without mentioning the only place where it is pretty much Halloween 365 days of the year, could we?

The Edinburgh Dungeons are a must-visit place in Edinburgh if you are looking for that little bit of gruesome horror mixed in with some historical education.

The fully immersive experience includes a witch hunt, meeting Maggie Dickson and, of course, the well-known duo of Burke and Hare.

The Ghost Bus 👻

Delve further into Edinburgh’s spooky history and tour the city with the most entertaining bus service in Edinburgh. You won’t need your bus pass for this one…

Visit the city’s most terrifying locations and make contact with restless spirits, courtesy of The Edinburgh Ghost Bus Tour.

The trip lasts for 1-hour as you embark on a journey to historically rich areas of Edinburgh such as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, all the while learning about the unthinkable truths and bloody executions that occurred.

All aboard, please!
