Edinburgh’s Most Intriguing Event Space

If you’re looking for a unique venue in Edinburgh, you’ve come to the right place. Atmospheric, quirky, magical, and one of a kind are words that have been used to describe the range of surprising spaces available to hire exclusively at The Real Mary King’s Close.


The Cowshed

One of our biggest and most unusual spaces, the cowshed can accommodate up to 50 people standing. Ideal for filming, concerts and plays.

The Gallery and Quarantine

A slightly more intimate space, the gallery can be used for whisky tastings, history talks, product launches, and more. This space can accommodate up to 25 (theatre style) or 30 standing.

Burgh Courtroom

Our biggest and brightest space, the Burgh Courtroom is grand in both design and space. Perfect for parties, drinks receptions, lunches, and whisky tastings. This space can accommodate up to 100 people standing.

The Courtyard

Our quirky new outdoor space is themed around Edinburgh’s plague doctors. Think lavender scents and informative storytelling , the courtyard can be used for product launches, pop-up bars, and as a Fringe show venue. Great for up to 30 standing.

Tell us your idea, and we’ll do all we can to make it happen. We love hearing your suggestions and bringing Edinburgh’s hidden history to life. We can also offer catering and event staff, or work with your caterers and event planners to organise a truly memorable event that will wow your guests.
