Holyrood Palace Tickets
At the end of the Royal Mile sits Holyroodhouse Palace (better known as Holyrood Palace), a jewel of classical architecture. You'll pass through the sumptuous baroque style halls of the royal residence, looking for the footprints the Scottish monarchs left behind.
You can visit the bedrooms of the palace's most famous resident, Mary Stewart (the most famous Scottish Queen), and during the visit, you're sure to feel a member of royalty as you admire the decorative furniture of the time, as well as magnificent tapestries and royal portraits.
In the royal grounds you can see the ruins of Holyrood Abbey, and wandering between its walls with the sky as the ceiling feel the romance and mystery with which it is still imbued. And neither should you miss the gardens which extend into the land surrounding Arthur's seat.
During your visit, you'll have an audio guide in English that'll help you discover why Holyrood is one of the most admired palaces in Scotland.
