The Dark Truth Tour takes guests on a journey into the darker side of Edinburgh's underground history. This 1 hour late night tour allows you to experience The Real Mary King's Close in a darker light.
With 20 spaces per tour this is an intimate evening for a unique experience you will be talking about for years afterwards. Witness some of the most dark and deadly deeds that took place in Edinburgh's Old Town from the 16th to the 20th century. From adulterous spirits that rose from their death to those who caused it, this interactive tour will take you on a journey exposing the darker characters from Edinburgh's murky past.
Various characters will be waiting to meet you. Will the witch pricker be looking for their next victim? Be careful they don't offer to test the painful pillywinks on you! Stop in and meet the Craig family who are suffering from the plague. Dr George Rae and his assistant Foul Clenger will keep you safe from contagion so that you don't end up in the clutches of notorious Burke and Hare who are wandering the underground looking for prey.
