The Judge & Courtroom

The Judge

You must be guilty or very guilty to find yourself in this court room and the Judge has little time for your excuses, he's due back in the pub!

This is a classic Dungeon's show and a massive crowd pleaser. We're all guilty... the only question is 'what of?' From witchcraft to inebriation, from being from Dundee to having a baldy heid. BOO the criminals!

What you'll learn

  • What's worse than murder, in the Judge's eyes? 
  • Who was the original sweaty Betty? 
  • Will pleading insane save you from the noose?

- The Judge and Courtroom


When I went to the Edinburgh Dungeons for my weeks holiday in September 2015 with my friends from Underhay . Inside it was dark and a bit scary and I didn't know what to expect when I was inside the Dungeon. The courtroom was my best bit of the tour - The Judge was brilliant and the show was great. I enjoyed every minute of it, and I hope to go back again later this year in May or June 2017 with Chris and Ian!”


Going today!

“I remember when I was wee, I went to The Dungeon and this was by far my favourite part! Thank you for giving me good time. Definitely worth my money :)”


Had an amazing time!

“Had such an amazing time here, never laughed so much! My brother was a cross dresser named Shirley who stole his neighbour's underwear and pranced about their garden..! I would definitely recommend!”


Judge and Courtroom

“An entertaining part of the show, had everyone laughing. My Dad was put on trial for dressing up as a woman and dancing down the Royal Mile!”


Judge and the Courtroom

“So i'm a total wimp, i hate scary anything, but my friends dragged me on the Dungeon Tour.. and I have to say it was fantastic! Entertaining, scary, hilarious, interactive, and thoughtful. The cast was personal and professional in every scene. The courtroom judge was my favorite, the way he portrayed his character was so real, other than some of the ludicrous jokes (of course!). Needless to say, I'll be back with friends. This tour made a scaredy cat a total fan.”
