The Real Mary King´s Close

The Real Mary King´s Close

The Real Mary King's Close is a series of streets in Edinburgh's Old Town dating back to medieval times. For centuries this area was under cover but following archaeological excavations the area was exposed and in April 2003 these streets were opened up as a tourist attraction. These medieval streets quickly became associated with stories of ghosts and it was claimed that there were many bodies of plague victims that had been walled up and abandoned. There is however no evidence to support these claims but many visitors claim to have experience paranormal activities. The buildings were originally seven storeys high and covered both sides of the street, some of these have been replicated to resemble how the street would have originally looked. Guided tours take place approximately every 20 minutes, daily throughout the year (except Christmas Day). The first tour of the day starts at 10am (9am during August) but closing times vary throughout the year, details can be found on the website. Tours last approximately one hour. Admission prices are: Adult - £10.50 (12 Euros) Children - £6.00 (7 Euros) Concessions - £9.50 (11 Euros)
