But if you find yourself wishing the Dungeons were even scarier, your prayers have been answered just in time for Halloween.

What are the Dungeon Lates?

Dungeon Lates is a brand new series of adults-only events that promise to be “bolder, darker and much scarier” than the usual Edinburgh Dungeon experience.

The after hours tours offer up “shocks and thrills” which have been dialled up to the maximum - so much so that it’s strictly only open for those 18 years and older.
