Crime and Punishment: Explore Aberdeen's darker history on a walking audio tour

2 reviews
From bodysnatching and beheadings to witchcraft and whippings, we share real life stories of crime and punishment from the last 500 years on this self-guided GPS audio tour.<br><br>Along the way you’ll see major Aberdeen landmarks, from Marischal College to the Mercat Cross, and learn how they were witness to darkest chapters in the city’s history. Scot Free Tours sheds a light on the baffling and often unjust laws of the last five centuries – and reveals that past is not as far away as we think.<br><br>Thousands of people have loved our 5-star rated live tours and now you can experience them with freedom of an audio guide! The tour plays audio automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline. Start the tour in the app, put your phone in your pocket, and let us guide you around Aberdeen.<br><br>The total walking distance is 3km and takes about 45 minutes without stopping, but you can pause anytime!

What a fantastic place to visit with my near 2 yr old. Great for toddlers, so much to explore on one visit that we will definitely be back soon. The highlights include an interactive robot which got a dance of approval, building a6ft archway with the help of the excellent member of staff whose name I sadly missed.

Went here recently with my 2 year old and we had a great time. Lots of interesting interactive activities and things to build, buttons to push and a nice cafe to. I’m going to bring my 9 and 6 year old here to as they will love it.
