Launch of The Tay Cities Heritage Pass
Two top visitor attractions in Tay Country have teamed up to create, ‘The Tay Cities Heritage Pass’. With a 20% discount on admission this great value ticket gives visitors access to Discovery Point, Dundee and The Black Watch Castle and Museum, Perth. Not only can you step aboard RRS Discovery the ship built and designed in Dundee for Captain Scott’s maiden expedition to Antarctica, you can also explore the incredible story of Scotland’s oldest Highland Regiment, The Black Watch.
Anne Kinnes, Chief Executive of The Black Watch Castle and Museum states, “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Dundee Heritage Trust. The Tay Cities Heritage Pass not only gives visitors value for money it creates a special opportunity to access two top Tayside attractions that share stories from Scotland’s rich heritage.”
Kim Adamson, Marketing Manager at Dundee Heritage Trust continues, “We are delighted to be working with The Black Watch Museum and Castle on this joint ticket with Discovery Point. It offers a unique chance to cross-promote our two cities and two 5-star attractions. It also gives our visitors an enhanced experience and very good value for money.”
Caroline Warburton, Regional Leadership Director, VisitScotland adds, “This exciting partnership between Dundee Heritage Trust and The Black Watch Castle & Museum is a fantastic example of collaborative working and an innovative approach to attracting more visitors. With Perth and Dundee being less than an hour away from each other, it makes absolute sense for attractions in the region’s two cities to work together.”
“If we wish to capitalise on the global interest in the region and also grow local tourism, then we need to consider different ways to encourage visitors to stay longer and explore all parts of the Tay region. I’m delighted that two of the region’s most popular attractions are already doing this. Tourism is a vital part of the Scottish economy, creating jobs and sustaining communities.”
The Tay Cities Pass can be purchased from both venues or at VisitScotland iCentres in Dundee and Perth and also through the attractions respective websites.
