Palace of Holyroodhouse

Palace of Holyroodhouse, Canongate, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH8 8DX, UK +44 (0)20 7766 7321

The Palace of Holyroodhouse is The Queen’s official residence in Scotland. It stands at the end of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile against the spectacular backdrop of Arthur’s Seat and is closely associated with Scotland’s rich history.

The State Apartments reflect the changing tastes of successive monarchs, and are renowned for their fine plasterwork ceilings and unrivalled collection of Brussels tapestries. They are furnished with numerous fine paintings and other works of art, many of which have long associations with Holyroodhouse. The visit to Holyroodhouse includes Mary, Queen of Scots’ Chambers and the Darnley Rooms, the setting for many dramatic episodes in Mary’s short and turbulent reign. In the Palace’s west corner tower are Mary’s Bedchamber, described as ‘the most famous room in Scotland’, and her Outer Chamber, the scene of Rizzio’s murder.
