For years, the hidden closes of the Old Town have been shrouded in myths and mysteries, with blood-curdling tales of murders and of plague victims being walled up and left to die. During The True Crime Tours, reveal a truer story, rotted in fact and – as is often the case – more fascinating than any amount of fiction.
For the first time ever, we will be dedicating a full tour to the crimes that were committed on Mary King’s Close and surrounding closes. We will explore the darker tales of our closes and Edinburgh ft Burke and Hare, Deacon Brodie, Euphamie MacCalzean, Christine Allen and Agnes Chambers.
These 1-hour fully guided True Crime Tours will be only available for those over 18s and brave enough to uncover the dark truth of Edinburgh’s hidden history.
When: Daily from Saturday 15th October until Monday 31st October
Time: Tours starting at 19.30 and 21.00.
Price: £21/adult (over 18s only)
