Taking The Ghost Train To Edinburgh

A major reason for people to rent luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh is because of its history and location. Another is its ghosts – Edinburgh is one of the UK’s most haunted cities, with numerous ghost tours and paranormal investigations taking place night after night, throughout the year.

However, those who make the city their regular haunt will know that the best time for a budding ghost hunter to book serviced apartments in Edinburgh is earlier in the year, when the city has its annual Ghost Festival. In 2010 the award winning Mary King’s Ghost Fest will take place in March. Accommodation in Edinburgh will be in high demand at this time, but most people will head for the hotels. Book luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh by the Royal Mile district, and you’ll be right at the centre of things – and there’ll be no queues for breakfast, either.

Mary King’s Close is one of many mediaeval streets which disappeared underground during the 16th Century. Made famous by Living TV’s Most Haunted, Doctor Ciaran O’Keeffe will be paying a return visit during the festival. Other highlights include the ‘Paradox Experience’ at Blair Street Vaults, and night-time rambles around Mary King’s Close and the Vaults. Various paranormal groups will be conducting their own tours, showing members of the public a few tricks of their trade.

The city has a number of walking tour operators offering ghost walks. One of the best known is City of the Dead Tours, who will be organising a Victorian Séance.

Edinburgh Ghost Fest offers something for all the family and we at Serviced City Pads have plenty of serviced apartments in Edinburgh.
