The Real Mary King’s Close is hidden beneath the characteristic and lively streets of Edinburgh’s busy thoroughfare – the Royal Mile.
Shrouded in myths and mysteries, the Close and its warren of streets, homes, and passageways offer a truly unique 5 star visitor experience. Unlock the secrets of Edinburgh’s only preserved 17thcentury street, wander through a labyrinth of Old Town alleyways, avoid the cry of gardyloo, and discover the stories of the people who lived, worked, and died here.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable visit, we have made some changes to the tours and are asking everyone to book online in advance.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Real Mary King’s Close Tours are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
