34 Reviews

Hidden away beneath the cobbled streets of Edinburgh's Old Town, the Real Mary King’s Close is a historic street that disappeared from view in the 1800s, when Edinburgh’s lower classes were forced underground to allow for the city’s modernization. Nowadays, the street offers a family-friendly glimpse into Edinburgh’s past, with tours led by costumed character guides.
