  1. “During a tour of the Real Mary Kings Close, which takes you under the Royal Mile into a warren of hidden closes where real people lived, worked and died in bygone centuries. You will discover the highs and lows of sixteenth-century townhouse living. Learn how the Burgh Council dealt with the plague epidemic of 1644-1646 and see one of the best surviving examples of seventeenth-century housing in Scotland. Tour lasts around 50 minutes, where the history is non stop the whole time.”
