Enjoy a walking tour of whole Royal Mile, from Edinburgh Castle down to the Palace of Holyrood
Enjoy a wonderful day visiting the two most magnificent past and present Royal residences of the City of Edinburgh: the Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. We will start at the very top of the Royal Mile, with the fascinating Edinburgh Castle which has a vital place in the history of Scotland with tales of royals, sieges and murders. We will travel down hill into the heart of the Old Town, visiting the highlights as well as discovering the off the beaten path secrets of the Lawnmarket and the High Street. Finally we will end the tour with the extraordinary Royal Palace, place for many dramatic episodes in the short reign of Mary, Queen of Scots. If time allows us to do so, we will visit the Palace inside, otherwise we will admire it from outside, hearing all the fascinating stories relating to it and visit Calton Hill instead.
