About The Real Mary King's Close

Hidden deep beneath the Royal Mile, lies one of Edinburgh’s deepest secrets – the award-winning The Real Mary King’s Close. This warren of hidden ‘closes’ or narrow streets where real people lived, worked and died, lay forgotten and covered by the City Chambers on the Royal Mile for centuries, until in 2003 it opened as a fascinating new visitor attraction for Edinburgh. Now an award-winning, Scottish Tourist Board accredited five-star attraction, The Real Mary King’s Close allows visitors to step back in time and be guided through these famous underground closes to witness some of the most dramatic episodes from Edinburgh’s incredible past.

A unique and historic site, it is a dark, underground time capsule, thought by many visitors to be haunted by its former inhabitants. In spite of this, the attraction’s aim is to reveal the very real history connected to the site’s amazing past, more fascinating that any amount of fiction. The Real Mary King’s Close is operated by Continuum - visitor attraction operators and specialists in the tourism and leisure industry. See www.continuum-group.com
