Your Experience

Situated at the end of the Royal Mile in the center of Edinburgh against the breathtaking backdrop of Arthur’s Seat, the Palace of Holyroodhouse is absolutely stunning both inside and out. The official Royal residence in Scotland, Her Majesty the Queen conducts important official business here, as well as lavish engagements and garden parties. Take a walk through the exquisitely decorated State Apartments, renowned for their beautiful plasterwork ceilings, historical works of arts and incredible collection of magnificent tapestries. Reflecting on the changing tastes of the monarchs through the ages, the scope of decor is impressive. Visit the Throne Room used for receptions and other State occasions, and see where the Knights and Ladies of the Order of the Thistle attend the special luncheon. Enter the Great Gallery, the largest room in the palace, filled with Jacob de Wet’s portraits of legendary Kings of Scotland.

You will also get to explore Mary, Queen of Scots' royal chambers, the location for many dramatic events including the murder of her Italian secretary. During her short and turbulent reign, Mary resided at Holyroodhouse. Get to visit her Bedchamber, the Outer Chamber and her oratory on this tour.
