Date Posted: 20/09/2013

The Real Mary King’s Close in Edinburgh has been awarded five stars at the VisitScotland awards, for the tenth consecutive year.

The attraction brings the area’s history to life through character tour guides, including a ‘foul clenger’ and Mary King’s daughter.

Manuela Calchini from VisitScotland said: “Since day one, The Real Mary King’s Close team has committed to delivering a quality visitor experience and has always shown a genuine passion across all that they do.”

This latest news comes as the attraction celebrates its tenth anniversary with special events including The Dark Truth Tour which features for the first time in this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme.

Celebrations will culminate with ‘Close Fest’ which launches on Halloween and promises to show off the attraction as never before.

Schools are entitled to a discounted entry rate. Teachers can download an education pack full of information and activities from the attractions’ website.
