Things to Know Before You Go

  • Edinburgh Dungeon is a thrilling way to get acquainted with the more macabre chapters of the city’s history.

  • The subterranean dungeon, which can be scary for young kids, is recommended for those age eight and older. Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

  • The dim lighting and narrow passageways make it unsuitable for claustrophobes.

  • Most areas of the dungeon are accessible to wheelchair users via lifts. The boat ride, however, is not, and the Drop Dead ride is only accessible to those who can transfer to the seats unaided and adequately brace themselves against the motion.
