A close is a sort of underground passage through the city and this close was named after Mary King who was a merchant's burgess and lived in this close. The close is noted in folklore for ghostly tales of spirits and death. It was partially demolished and closed to the public for a very long time but then reopened and is now a tourist attraction. It has many artifacts from the time period and some of the old shops and more remain intact. It is a great place to go and is talked about on most ghost walking tours as they tell the tales of the dead.

Hands down, this was my favourite part of all of Edinburgh. This close (an alleyway) was built over when the modern day city of Edinburgh was built, but it gives you a great insight of the history of Edinburgh during these times! The overall feel of the area is eerie, especially when you get to the ghost of Annie, but I can’t express enough how much I enjoyed it.

Last note: I don’t believe you’re actually allowed to take pictures once you’re inside.

Fascinating view of Edinburgh in the 17th century. The Close (a system of alleyways and courtyards), in the Old Town, was partially demolished and buried due to the building of the Royal Exchange in the 18th century. There are many myths and urban legends associated with the close - tales of murders and hauntings make this quite an eerie visit, particularly since this is entirely underground.

You might think this is a tourist trap, but it’s one of the best ways to explore Edinburgh’s history and have fun at the same time. If you’re a stick-in-the-mud then don’t go, because you do need to participate to have fun.

Spooky, fun and interesting. Roam through Edinburgh's long-forgotten old streets underneath the City above.

An interesting historical place underground where you can take a tour that will revive the past and show you a hidden part of the city.

Excellent informative tour about life in old Edinburgh. Spooky goings on with our camera and strange images only added to the ambience

The Real Mary King's Close is a hidden gem of Edinburgh. You are paying only 15 pounds per person and in return you are getting the wonderful tour of the city's undergrounds! You can see how people lived in the past and learn a lot about the history of Scotland. It was great.

Fascinating view of the old town and how life was lived. Bit gimmicky but don't let that put you off.

The Real Mary Kings Close tour was one of our favorite excursions during our trip to Edinburgh. I was worried it'd be a bit hokey, but it was awesome. The fact that the underground city is basically still intact down there is pretty impressive. The Real Mary Kings Close gives you a realistic look at what living in Scotland looked like back in the day. The Real Mary Kings Close is completely different from, but in a way similar to, the experience you get from walking around the catacombs in Paris or the Basilica Cistern in Istanbul. You basically come away from the experience feeling like you got a unique opportunity to travel back in time. Helpful Tip: Bring a toy or a plush animal for the ghost of the little Annie, a young girl who still haunts the close. :)

Fascinating tour of one of the old "closes" or streets long built over off the Royal Mile. Very creepy in places and reputedly haunted!

Absolutely great tour of the underground history of Edinburgh. The guides are not only entertaining they are incredibly knowledgeable about this history of the City and the Close. While initially I thought this was meant to be quite a scary tour, I was mistaken. Overall worth the cost as the money goes to the maintenance of the Close and surrounding area.

Sadly too many people visit this attraction in the hope of encountering a ghost. The reality is that the story of Mary Kings Close, while inpirational of ghost stories, is one of tragedy. The close was sealed up by the council during an outbreak of the plague and its occupants left to die inside, cut off from the rest of the city. Re-discovered and opened to the public in the 1970s a tour of the close brings historic Edinburgh to life!

Take a tour this Victorian street underneath Edinburgh. It was blocked up after the bubonic plague, they simply built on top. It's a dark, scary place which can make the hair stand up on the back of your neck!
