Five stars for our Edinburgh attraction

Our Heritage attraction The Real Mary King’s Close is reaping the rewards of its £500,000 redevelopment project as VisitScotland awards the top Edinburgh attraction five stars for the twelfth year in a row.

The award follows a momentous year of investment as we reinstated doorways on the Royal Mile, created a new entrance and exhibition area as well as adding an internal 40-seat café, The Royal Exchange Coffee House.

“To have retained our five star accreditation following such a major year in the attraction’s history is testament to the dedicated team we have here at The Real Mary King’s Close. The developments have seen our visitor journey expand meaning guests can experience more than ever before; from myth busting in our new exhibition area, to sampling Scottish produce in The Royal Exchange Coffee House.” comments Craig Miller, our attraction’s General Manager.

“However, we are not stopping here. Part of our success is down to us continually looking at new ways to enhance our visitor experience whether that’s through on-going investment or staff training. 2016 promises to be an exciting year for us with events throughout the year and tour developments planned for the summer season. Developments such as these ensure we always deliver a five star experience, creating stories that live and memories that last.”


Reinvesting in and enhancing our portfolio of attractions and their teams is key to our company’s success. We’re continuing to do so in 2016 as we invest in our Icon attraction, the Emirates Spinnaker Tower. The enhancements will significantly transform the experience, allowing guests to start their journey on the ground floor before heading 100 metres above sea level to enjoy the stunning panoramic vista. Watch this space to hear more about the developments…
