The Real Mary King's Close

(Brought to you by Continuum Attractions)
 
Uncover the true story of how a network of Old Town streets found itself buried forever beneath Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. The Real Mary King’s Close is a 1 hour underground guided tour of the now hidden streets and homes from 17th Century Edinburgh.
Mary King’s Close was once one of Edinburgh’s busiest and liveliest streets. So how did such an important thoroughfare end up sealed off from the world for nearly 400 years?
With your character guide, explore the close’s series of underground passageways. Discover what daily life was really like in the 1600s and how disease and the demands of a growing city sealed the close’s fate forever. 
This 5 star attraction opens up a unique time capsule to reveal a world-famous street frozen in time.
