About Condemned

Visit The Real Mary King’s Close this Halloween, for the return of the 2016 sell out tour Condemned. A late night tour experience, Condemned offers a unique insight into Edinburgh’s fascinating history with the occult, telling the real stories of its infamous accomplices and most ardent opponents.

Join a character guide and travel back to a time when Mary King’s Close was open to the skies. Fear and suspicion lurked around every corner, and witch trials were a regular occurrence. Hear how the inhabitants of Mary King’s Close and the surrounding streets were implicated in witchcraft, and the fate that befell them.

Condemned will take you on a journey through Scottish history, documenting how and why attitudes changed over time. Make your way into the 18th century and see how the Enlightenment introduced new ways of thinking, changing perceptions and bringing relief to those who would have once have hidden behind closed doors.

This Halloween, who will you believe and who will you condemn?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Condemned are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
