Step back in time and experience Mary Kings Close -- a network of narrow underground alleys running beneath the City Chambers along Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile.
Mary Kings Close was a daylight passageway at the heart of Edinburgh's busiest and most vibrant streets in 1645. However, 400 years later, it is well below street level, and this underground warren can only be accessed by a portal to the past that is open to you today. Discover how this happened and why as your costumed guide in character takes you on a tour through the close, sharing intriguing stories about this mysterious place, its role during the Plague, and the living conditions of the day.
Next, you'll take a guided walk along the famous Royal Mile before returning to the ship.
Your groups will be split into smaller groups to visit Mary Kings Close; large extended family groups may be separated for the underground walk.
