About Royal Mile

The Royal Mile is the tourist hub of Old Town, consisting of the streets of Castlehill, the Lawnmarket, the High Street, the Canongate and Abbey Strand in Edinburgh, Scotland. This historic city centre combines cultural and modern offerings, outstanding views, and subsequently is one of the most visited streets in Edinburgh.

Walking tours around the area are commonplace due to the vast amount of things to see, a few major landmarks being the Museum of Edinburgh, the Scotch Whisky Experience, Real Mary Kings Close, and the Storytelling Centre. Significant landmarks include the iconic Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyroodhouse, and Scottish Parliament. Shopping and dining opportunities abound ranging from cashmere boutiques to decadent Scottish fares. Two popular festivals are hosted in the area, respectively known as Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

The Waverly Train Station services the Royal Mile, located a five-minute walk away. Limited street parking and a few nearby car parks provide for personal vehicular access including along Blackfriars Street and at Waverly Station.

The history of the Royal Mile is rooted in the constructions of the Holyroodhouse in the 11th century. The presence of a castle at one end and a palace at another accounts for the constant residential popularity of the area throughout its vast existence.
