The Ratway Vaults is a small, three-tier set of sewer-like tunnels accessed via The Ragged Flagon in Riften.


The Ratway Vaults are populated by paired or lone Skeevers, Vagrants, and Lowlifes. The first sentry near the entrance is particularly alert.

Hostile Thalmor agents will be encountered here during the quest A Cornered Rat.
