Underground City Of The Dead

Black as Satan’s jammies, with a fascinating history to match, these vaults were forgotten for centuries and only recently unsealed. This part of the South Bridge Vaults is known as Damnation Alley. With good reason. These dark tunnels and are stalked by a malevolent presence known as the South Bridge Entity. Underground City of the Dead is researched and written by the award winning novelist and historical author, Jan-Andrew Henderson. The story of this hidden metropolis is told in his book
City Of The Dead Graveyard Tour
The Graveyard tour combines the weirdest history with the wildest stories and wickedest humour around. This tour even has a unique gift shop - located in a graveyard funeral parlour!
Best of all, City of the Dead has access to the Covenanters Prison and the Black Mausoleum - lair of the world famous Mackenzie Poltergeist .
An encounter with the poltergeist is the highlight of the tour, with hundreds of people claiming to have been attacked by the enitity. The MacKenzie Poltergeist is now regarded as the best documented supernatural case of all time and the tour has become equally famous - the subject of a book as well as scores of television documentaries, newspaper articles and websites.
A careful blend of fascinating history and distinctive humour, culminating in a genuinely terrifying experience has made the Graveyard Tour a phenomenon.
