Pick a place to suit your pace

Every traveler’s idea of the ultimate night out is different, so an Edinburgh night tour with City Unscripted will always be 100% personalized. The city’s diverse districts have something for a certain type of night owl, and we’ll plan your night tour in an area that suits your style. If you want drinking and dancing, the Cowgate area with its live music, quirky speakeasies, and electrifying clubs is a must-visit. But if you prefer your Edinburgh night tour a little more low-key, you could head to George Street’s elegant cocktail lounges or the late-night shops on vibrant Princes Street.

A hauntingly beautiful city

There’s something spooky about the atmospheric Scottish capital, and in Edinburgh at night, there’s a definite chill in the air. An Edinburgh night tour is the perfect time to discover the city’s pagan past, creepy ghost stories, and unnerving tales of mystery and murder. If you’re feeling particularly brave, you could learn about the real-life inspiration for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and see the sites of old witch trials, or turn your experience into an Edinburgh haunted tour at the city’s historic graveyards and underground vaults rumored to be plagued by restless spirits.
