Palace Of Holyroodhouse - Review

Tickets From $19.85

Her Majesty The Queen of England’s official residence in Scotland, the palace was built in 1505 at the site of an abbey that exists to this day. Mary, Queen of Scots, stayed here. Over the years it fell into decline due to turmoil and lack of maintenance, but was entirely restored by the 1920s and now is a major attraction. Sparkling jewels, fancy rooms and rich tapestries are the order of the day. The abbey too is a curiosity; though defunct, it provides an atmospheric experience and its said that if you listen close, you could almost hear the chanting of the nuns. Be sure to check out the lovely if small gallery and also the gardens. Feel free to ask the staff anything: they are highly well informed and helpful. Point of interest: the ghost of Bald Agnes Sampson, a woman tortured to death after being found guilty of witchcraft) is said to roam the palace.

Palace Of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh Reviews

  • Very elegant place. We were in town for different reasons, so by the time we were free, there was not enough time to visit whole place. So we took a quick trip to see this part of the city. The palace is as elegant as any other Royal palaces. Very historic from outside. The souvenirs shop was very upscale to the standards of royalty. This gave us the opportunity to buy something to remember this palace and our visit. Palace is located in beautiful settings and requires full day to visit attractions in this part of the city.

  • Great palace to see. Might even have a better garden then Buckingham Palace. Not too busy on a rainy day so not many crowds. Very accessible and walkable. Great history also inside even if it is much smaller than Buckingham Palace. Can spend up to two hours here on average.

  • One of Edinburgh top attractions. Great historical palace at the end of the Royal Mile. Great views of Arthur Seat, this is the Queen's summer palace. Loaded with paintings and furniture. Beautiful gardens and ruins. Lots of interesting things to photograph. Use the Head set for a tour at your pace.

  • Nice tour of the Scottish residence of the queen. Got a glimpse of the history along with the taste of some contemporary setup at the Queen's dining room. 14 different rooms meant for different purposes..... From official meetings, to casual tea sessions, to some award giving ceremonies and more. You are provided a free audio guide which gives you details of each room and all the exhibits. Photography is not allowed on the 1st & the 2nd floor inside the palace.

  • The palace was closed the first time we went because of the presence of a dignitary. We went a second time when it was open to the public. It is very interesting to visit the Queen's scottish palace in Edinburgh. The audio guide is instructive. The cafe at the entrance is nice. The gardens are well maintained and taken care of.
