The Palace of Holyroodhouse, Her Majesty The Queen’s official residence in Scotland, stands at the end of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile against the spectacular backdrop of Arthur’s Seat. Best known as the home of Mary, Queen of Scots, today the State Apartments are used regularly by The Queen for State ceremonies and official entertaining. Visitors can explore the 14 historic and State Apartments and the ruins of Holyrood Abbey with a complimentary multimedia tour.
With group rates, a group-friendly café and gift shop, the Palace offers a marvellous visit all year round.
Royal Collection Trust has received a ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation showing our commitment to keeping visitors safe while they visit.
The Palace is currently open Thursday – Monday, 09:30 – 15:00.
