Souvenir Guidebook

Souvenir GuidebookFor years the hidden closes of Old Town Edinburgh have been shrouded in myths and mysteries, with blood-curdling tales of ghosts and murders. With our souvenir guidebook you can discover more information from research and archaeological evidence which has revealed a truer story, rooted in fact.

Our beautifully designed, full-colour book builds on the stories you experience on your visit, delving deeper into the stories of Old Edinburgh. Relive the story of Mary King and discover more about other residents of the Close, from ‘the pest’ of the 1600s to how Mary King’s Close spent the Second World War. The guide also provides a plan of the Closes, a timeline of important events and a helpful glossary of scottish terms.

Priced at just £4.50 each, your souvenir guides will become a permanent reminder of your visit and a go-to guide for discovering the secrets of hidden Edinburgh.

Purchase your guidebook in advance when booking your tickets online.
