About this activity

Discover the regal splendor of Edinburgh’s Palace of Holyroodhouse complex. Explore the State Apartments, see Mary Queen of Scots’ historic chambers, the Throne Room, and more.

Full Description 

Wander the opulent state rooms and lavish gardens of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, His Majesty The King’s official Scottish residence, located at the end of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
Once inside the baroque palace, learn about its close associations with Scotland’s history via a complimentary multimedia guide (available in 9 languages). Visit the State Apartments to see the changing tastes of successive monarchs. Marvel at fine plasterwork ceilings and Brussels tapestries, along with paintings and other artworks in rooms still used by the King and Royal Family for official ceremonies.
Go to the Throne Room to see where lunch was served to the Knights and Ladies of the Order of the Thistle when a new knight was installed. Discover where the King holds his private audiences in the Morning Drawing Room. Continue to the Great Gallery, where Scottish residents named in the New Year’s Honours List or Kings Birthday Honours List receive their award at an Investiture ceremony.
Admire Jacob de Wet’s portraits of real and legendary kings of Scotland in the Great Gallery, the largest room in the palace. Learn about dramatic events from Scotland’s history in Mary Queen of Scots’ historic chambers, where she witnessed the brutal murder of her secretary, Rizzio, by her jealous husband, Lord Darnley.
At the end of your multimedia tour, enjoy a refreshing drink or light lunch (own expense) at the Café at the Palace.
