What is dark tourism?
The term “Dark Tourism” was created in Scotland the 1990s by Glasgow Caledonian professor John Lennon. Dark Tourism is the concept of traveling to places historically associated with death and tragedy. The reason dark tourists, such as myself, are drawn to such places are for historical and educational value – rather than from a place for the exploitation of death and suffering. Dark Tourism involves visiting locations such as the Glasgow Necropolis or exploring some of Edinburgh’s Spookiest Locations.

Although ghosts, poltergeist, and all things haunted fall under the realm of dark tourism - I like to keep them separate.
Some of the spooky stories and scary tales are taken from real historical events. However, a lot of spooky tourism can be seen as fun travel adventures designed to give you a fright.
