Very good experience of our visit to the Palace and fashion to mark the Queen,'s 90th birthday. Audio tour was good, all staff in the Palace were friendly and knowledgeable. However on visiting the cafe outside the Palace the staff were unfriendly and rude. A rucksack had been left unattended in the outside seating area and when cafe staff were...

Fantastic working royal palace full of Royal splender, treasures and history. Everyroom more spectacular than the rest. Frequented by her Majesty the Queen every year. Ooh and dont miss the fabulous exhibition of her dresses.

We took the self guided audio tour of the palace and grounds. I had friends from Austria with me. it was their first visit and they were very interested to see and hear the history of this beautiful royal home. We enjoyed the exhibit of Queen's fashion through the years. Beautiful gardens. Cost is £11.00 for adults so not massively...

5 of us arranged a day trip specifically focused on the clothing exhibition. It's obvious the best was in London so why didn't they wait and move it all up here. 3 rooms of outfits. Nice enough but not enough. Modern outfits poorly displayed on poor sized mannequins and the queen never wore hats tilted back. The outfit worn for...

If you are visiting Holyrood Palace, The Fashioning a Reign exhibit is a chance to see some of the beautiful couture, tartans and outfits worn by the Queen over the years. It is a short exhibit, but well worth it to appreciate the exquisite workmanship on display. Each outfit displayed has a picture and details of where it was worn,...

Visit to Holyrood Palace today, the palace itself is magnificent albeit not many rooms to view, well worth a visit for history purposes, magnificent tapestry on display. Was so looking forward to viewing the exhibition of the Queen's clothing to celebrate 90 years but a poor representation of 90 years, two small rooms of clothing, had been so looking forward...

My Husband and I visited on our current trip to Edinburgh. Beautiful building steeped in history. You can self guide or have a guided tour which is included in the price. We choose self guide as we like to take our time to take in every thing we can at our own pace. My favourite part was seeing Mary Queen...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
