your experience

Situated at the end of the Royal Mile in the center of Edinburgh, the Palace of Holyroodhouse is absolutely stunning both inside and out. A royal residence in Scotland for over 5 centuries, Her Majesty the Queen uses it for state ceremonies and official entertaining.

Explore the Historic Apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots. These walls have witnessed many dramatic events during her short and turbulent reign, including the murder of her Italian secretary by her husband Lord Darnley. It is hardly a surprise then that her Bedroom came to be described as 'the most famous room in Scotland'.

Take a walk through the exquisitely decorated State Apartments, renowned for their beautiful plasterwork ceilings, historical works of arts, and an unparalleled collection of Brussels tapestries. Reflecting on the changing tastes of the succeeding monarchs through the ages, the scope of decor is impressive. Visit the Great Gallery, where Bonnie Prince Charlie held several lavish balls after the setup of Jacobite Court in September 1745.

Take the chance to discover the ruins of Holyrood Abbey and the Palace's unique gardens, set against the breathtaking backdrop of Arthur’s Seat. Admire a colorful array of medicinal and culinary plants inspired by some of the earliest recorded gardens of the site, at the newly added physic garden. Drop by at the Café at the Palace, where you can get everything from light refreshments and afternoon tea to lunch. You will get to enjoy delicious homemade dishes made from locally sourced produce.
