Having liaised with The Edinburgh Dungeon staff before their visit, Anthony Johnson's proposal plan went without a hitch. 

Rachael was summoned into the docks during the coutroom scene of the tour, engaging in a short exchange with the acting judge before her partner of three years got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. 

In a state of shock, Rachael asked Anthony if he "really wanted to do this in a dungeon", but quickly accepted his proposal. The happy couple then continued their hour-long dungeon experience with the rest of their group, culminating in The Grassmarket Gallows exhilirating vertical drop ride. 

Commenting on the proposal, Rachael said: “I was a bit overwhelmed probably because it was so unexpected, but I was and am still so excited and really happy. I had thought that perhaps he was thinking about it, but I did not expect it at all, especially not in a dungeon.”

“We absolutely love the dungeon, the staff and the actors are phenomenal," continued Rachael. "They included us in jokes throughout; they were just really amazing."
