Looking to take a private tour during the day?

Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, your guests will go on a journey through time on these now hidden streets where they will uncover some of the city’s deepest secrets. In the company of an expert character guide, based on a one time resident of Mary King’s Close, your guests will hear about the real people who lived and worked on these once bustling closes.
From the maid to the merchant, the plague cleaner to the poet, each character offers a unique perspective of day to day life in 16th and 17th century Edinburgh.

Ideal for a special VIP experience or should a private translation be required, we are now offering a unique opportunity for your guests or clients to enjoy a private tour of The Real Mary King’s Close and have a one to one journey through this fascinating historical site.  Booking a private tour gives your guests the opportunity to simply tailor the tour to any specific requirements you may have.

Additional Characters….

If you are looking to add an extra thrill to the experience, incorporate interactive characters along the tour route. Hidden away in the depths of the Close, these characters lie in wait ready to add that extra edge to this already unique experience. From the Witch Pricker to the Plague Doctor, each additional character provides a different, somewhat darker, insight into Edinburgh’s fascinating past.

With up to twenty spaces available per group, this is an intimate evening and a perfect way to spend time with friends and family for a truly unique experience.
Private Tours can be tailored specifically to you and your group with the addition of drinks and food on request.

Bespoke private tours are available throughout the year. Contact Marta Coco, Sales Executive on 0131 225 0675 or mcoco@realmarykingsclose.com to make an enquiry and book today.
