ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Treasures of Edinburgh's Old Town Tour

This experience will allow you unlock the history of Edinburgh! You'll not only explore the Royal Mile, but discover the lesser known Canongate and magnificent Palace of Holyroodhouse.

This walking tour of Edinburgh’s Canongate and Palace of Holyroodhouse is a celebration of Scottish history. Explore an often-overlooked part of the Old Town, before visiting Her Majesty The Queen's official residence in Scotland.

Tours depart from Mercat Cross, on the Royal Mile, where you’ll meet your expert guide. While you walk, they’ll begin telling the story of Edinburgh’s Old Town and the Canongate district. Over the course of the tour, you’ll follow a somewhat forgotten path to the palace, tracing the footsteps of rebellious Jacobites, Bonnie Prince Charlie, sickly poet Robert Ferguson and a host of other colourful characters. Outside the Palace of Holyroodhouse, your guide will give a comprehensive introduction, before leaving you to explore the fourteen state apartments and 12th century abbey at your own pace. Home to Mary, Queen of Scots during her short and tumultuous reign, the palace remains the Monarch’s official residence in Scotland. Immerse yourself in five hundred years of royal history… and leave feeling every bit the history buff!

The Treasures of Edinburgh's Old Town Tour is an enlightening activity for visitors and locals alike, and it would make a unique experience gift for anyone interested in the Scottish capital’s colourful past. Treat your loved one to an Experience Days voucher today!
