Step down underground to the Close that time forgot and experience hours of pure ghost hunting with Haunted Evenings. The team will split you off into 2 groups to conduct experiments using their extensive paranormal equipment. Spend time in the Old Victorian House (fondly knowns as “Chesney's House) as well as take part in our unique trigger object vigil in Annie's room, a dwelling believed to be sadly haunted by an abandoned child who is thought to have died from the plague. If you know anything about this location, you'll know that this is one extremely unique place and as it's rarely investigated, it's an opportunity not to be missed!
The Real Mary Kings Close
The Real Mary Kings Close, now a museum, is buried deep beneath Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Hidden streets that remain frozen in the 17th Century. The Street (or Close) is literally under buildings in the old town and contains cobbled streets, rooms and vaults. Street lamps, mannequins and displays make this a location you will never forget!
Edinburgh's Haunted Museum
The close has had a reputation for hauntings since at least the 17th century, shrouded in myths and legends regarding unexplained happenings . Not many people have the “pleasure” of entering the Close overnight and the Close is rarely investigated.

Ghost Hunt Spoiler!
Our second nights investigation, as part of our Edinburgh Ghost Hunting weekend, was spent at the phenomenal (The Real) Mary Kings Close, a hidden street underneath Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile. A museum certainly worth visiting at anytime of day but one that takes on an even darker suppressive feel when spent with just a handful of others overnight.
This location has several areas to investigate, including the former house of “Chesney” as well as another fairly intact dwelling now best known as Annie’s room, former cattle sheds and various vaulted rooms, all make up parts of this location, an amazing and unique area buried beneath council buildings.
During our investigations on Saturday night, we focused our experiments around more scientific methods and whilst we did experience cold spots and spikes on our EMF devices, our most compelling evidence came from our voice recorders, where several EVP’s were captured (too many to list).
Some of the highlights…
Chesney’s House – complete with its own door, hallway, sitting area, toilet and (inaccessible cellar stairs), this dark and dilapidated house gave us some incredible voice recordings, from indecipherable sentences, to shouts, to clear responses! On 3 separate recorders we captured a very loud shout in response to “what’s your name?” Followed by “Leave” on 2 of the devices when we asked if we were welcome .
On the next recording we heard a very faint female voice which sounds totally different to the usual grainy responses we usually capture, we think it may say “Chesney” when asking them again to say their name but either way a very rare voice type to be recorded.
We got the impression that the women in-particular were not welcome in Chesneys house and so we asked “Do you have a message for the women in the room?” We got a response of “Get out of here”! This was captured on all 3 devices (very rare) -Brilliant!
The second group to investigate Chesney’s house also pick up a grainy EVP saying “Ches-ney, Get Out” when asking for the spirits name, again backing up the first groups vigil. They also captured a clear “Yes I do” when asked if Mr Chesney likes females.
Whilst investigating one of the vaulted rooms, a room which once would have been an entire families home, Group 1 captured an EVP saying “[I’ve] Got the plague” which certainly relates to the history of this location!
Numerous audio snippets were captured throughout the nights investigation which to us, certainly suggested spirit presence even when we couldn’t quite make out what was being said. Considering this location is buried deep beneath the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh where no radio waves could likely be picked up (of which our recorders wouldn’t pick up anyway) just goes to show how awesome the evidence truly was. We, as a team, certainly came away from Saturday’s investigation wanting more!
Thank you to every single guest who travelled far and wide to join us on our Edinburgh Weekend whether for one night or for both, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you all, you certainly Rose to the challenge!!
A massive thank you to the team (Jo, Neil and Sarah) for making this weekend such a memorable one. We cannot wait to return in 2019 – Nat
