Underneath the Royal Mile lies a warren of underground streets and houses that has remained frozen in time since the 17th century. In the company of an expert guide, visitors can explore the site and experience what it was like for people who lived, worked and died here. It is a journey through time while uncovering streets and houses hidden beneath one of the city’s well known thoroughfares.
