The Real Mary King’s Close is a warren of underground streets and spaces, back in the 1600’s, Mary King’s Close and neighbouring Closes were at the heart of Edinburgh’s busiest and most vibrant centre, open to the skies and bustling with traders selling their wares to the Old Town’s residents.
For years, the hidden Closes of Old Town Edinburgh have been shrouded in myths and mysteries, with blood curdling tales of ghosts and murders. Research and archaeological evidence have revealed a truer story, rooted in fact and – as is so often the case – more fascinating than any amount of fiction.
With a costumed character tour guide based on a one time resident, you will explore this underground site, hearing these fascinating stories.
