Summary of The Day: Tread the route of royals, past and present - and let your expert guide unlock the history of this ancient seat of power. Discover the hidden history of the Canongate, and the glorious Holyrood Palace.
Discover an approach to the palace that escapes the notice of history books and bus tours. As you walk down the quiet closes of the Canongate your expert guide will show you a different side of the royal city - in rich, engaging detail.
Here, rebellious Jacobites clattered over the cobbles, led by a proud Bonnie Prince Charlie. And Deacon Brodie led his dual life as locksmith and thief, immortalized by Robert Louis Stevenson. In the hands of your gifted storyteller, you'll find that romance and intrigue are everywhere - in the architecture, literature, crime and politics, on the very doorstep of the Queen's Palace.
After the Canongate, your guide will introduce the glorious Holyrood Palace - which you'll explore in your own time. You'll find 14 magnificent state apartments, as well as the romantic ruins of the 12th century Holyrood Abbey.
The palace was the setting for many dramatic episodes in the short reign of Mary, Queen of Scots - and Her Majesty The Queen still makes use of the State Apartments for royal ceremonies.
