About Palace of Holyroodhouse

Forming one end of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, or Holyrood Palace, as it is more commonly known, is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. The Holyrood Palace has been a royal residence since the 16th century and is still in use each summer by the current royal family.

Two main sections of Holyrood Palace are open to the public. The State Apartments remain in use to this day for Queen Elizabeth II’s annual weeklong residence in Edinburgh. Highlights include the portrait-lined Great Gallery and the Throne Room. Reaching farther back into history, the Mary Queen of Scots’ Chambers afford a glimpse at the life of one of Great Britain’s most famous tragic figures. Mary Queen of Scots took up residence at Holyroodhouse in 1561.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse is located directly opposite Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile. A walk between the two through the heart of Edinburgh Old Town would take less than 30 minutes. It is a comparable distance to the University of Edinburgh, which is located just south of the Old Town.

In the summer months, visitors can take a guided tour of the ruins of Holyrood Abbey. Founded in 1128, the abbey predates the Gothic palace by nearly 400 years. The abbey’s proximity to Edinburgh Castle made it an important political site, and over the centuries Scottish kings took to being buried at Holyrood until James IV elected to build a palace next door.
