Tron Kirk is a beautiful historic relic of Old Town. The church was opened in 1647 and then closed in 1952. For nearly half a century it remained empty except for an occasional special venue. This was despite its prime location at High Street and South Bridge. This is now a major tourist area in the epicenter of The Royal Mile between the castle and the palace. So as a service to help tourists spend their money, the Royal Mile Market opened inside the former church in 2015. You will find stalls offering crafts, arts, souvenirs and food plus an information center.
