Holyrood Palace Tickets
9.40 / 10
Visited on a lovely Autumn day; had booked tickets beforehand, but unfortunately not printed the ‘receipt’ which caused delay. Had it been a busy day with a queue, I would have been very unpopular. Ticket assistant helpful. Enjoyed the tour, but decided to just enjoy the Rooms without recorded tour details. We also appreciated at the end entering the Abbey garden and enjoying the beautiful colours of gorgeous trees .

Coronations, weddings, intrigue, betrayal, assassination... dive into the official residence of the queen of England and Scotland, and discover the secrets of Holyrood Palace.

What to expect in the palace?

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.

Along with an audioguide in English (and 8 other languages) by the end of the tour you'll be in no doubt as to why Holyrood is one of the most admired palaces in Scotland.
