The Location
The Real Mary King’s Close consists of a number of underground Closes which would have originally been very narrow walkways with houses on either side stretching up to 7 storeys high and dating back several centuries. In 1753 the Burgh authorities decided to develop a grand new building, the Royal Exchange (now the City Chambers). The houses at the top of the Closes were knocked down and part of the lower sections were kept and used as the foundations for the new building, leaving a number of dark and mysterious underground Closes and ancient dwellings steeped in mystery!

Since April 2003, guided parties of visitors have been able to visit The Real Mary King’s Close itself, and a range of other Closes and spaces that lie hidden beneath Edinburgh’s City Chambers – some of which have never before been open to the public. This relatively new attraction presents a historically accurate interpretation of life in these narrow alleyways from the 16th to the 19th century. Extensive documentary research and on-site survey works have been undertaken to provide an accurate platform for the subtle and unobtrusive interpretation of these A-listed buildings.

The Real Mary King’s Close is thought to be one of the most haunted places in Scotland. The first recorded sighting dates back to 1685 and concerns the Coltheart family who moved into the Close after the last outbreak of the plague. It was not long before Thomas and his wife experienced ‘spectres and nameless terrors’ in Mary King’s Close.

Other well-know occurences include a ‘worried man’, a woman in black, a little girl called Annie who spoke to a famous Japanese psychic, sounds of a party or tavern and scratching coming from inside a chimney where a child sweep is said to have died. Unusual occrences have been experienced by visitors and members of staff including stones being thrown, inexplicable footsteps. A number of strange photographs have also been captured by staff and visitors alike. Mr Chesney's house, at the bottom of Mary King's Close has been the subject of some quite intense Electronic Voice Phenomena study over the past 5 years, with some rather strange results.
