City of the Dead Tours

Founded in 1999, Black Hart Entertainment runs the world famous City of the Dead walks in Edinburgh – The Haunted Graveyard Tour, Underground City of the Dead and Double Dead Tours.

All our walks are written and researched by the historical author and award winning novelist, J A Henderson – who has written non-fiction books on the Underground City, The Mackenzie Poltergeist and Haunted Edinburgh.   Signed copies of these and his young adult and children’s novels are available from our gift shop or can be ordered on this website.   For more information see

Our guides are a mixture of historians and professional entertainers, picked for their ability to improvise, entertain and make each tour unique and individual.   This is history brought to life through storytelling, rather than simply walking around and pointing out historical facts.   As a result Black Hart Entertainment’s tours have enjoyed years of rave media reviews.
