Visit her Majesty the Queen's official Scotland residence. It was originally founded as a monastery in 1128 and it is situated at the end of historic Royal Mile. The palace is closely tied to the history of Scotland, since it is best known as the home of Mary, Queen of Scots. Come here to explore several splendid both historic and State apartments.
Nowadays, it mainly serves as a royal palace but it is also open to the public who can marvel at the items of the royal collection and visit regular exhibitions.
And even if you're not a fan of the Royal Family, this place is definitely worth your visit, as you can also admire the ruins of the 12th-century abbey and stroll through the royal gardens.
There are interesting events organised every now and then so be sure to check the official website before your visit.
