The Real Mary King's Close
The Close

The Real Mary King’s Close is a warren underground streets and spaces. It can be a strange concept to understand - back in the 1600’s, Mary King’s Close and neighbouring Closes were at the heart of Edinburgh’s busiest and most vibrant streets, open to the skies and bustling with traders selling their wares to the Old Town’s residents. Why would this street find itself underground 400 years later?
