Dark and Deadly Dalkeith Walking Tour® (26th Oct)

Great place – great space! Dalkeith Museum makes the most of the great space beneath the high vaulted Corn Exchange ceiling. It is also a great place to stage Museum linked events.

The Museum relies on such events to raise funds to cover core costs and to encourage new visitors, who might not normally visit a Museum, to come to Dalkeith. Winter events include evening walking tours and book presentations. Browse our events below for more information, booking details and costs.

7pm | 26th October 2019

The end of British Summer time and only 4 days until Halloween.

Join storyteller Lady Anne Kerr and discover the deadlier, dangerous side of Dalkeith. Travel back to the mid 1600’s – a time when witches were persecuted, tried and burned.

Today it seems incredible that a whole society should believe in witchcraft, but over 100 years more than 1000 were killed in Scotland and a generous quota in Dalkeith.

The tour begins at the Dukes’ Gates – the entrance to Dalkeith Country Park and will end in the Museum – with refreshments to calm your shattered nerves!


Tickets also available at Dalkeith Museum, 61 St Andrew Street.
