Mary, Queen of Scots, once lived here. her husband, with his cohorts, murdered her assistant in the palace. Later, her husband was also murdered. Mary was charged with his murder. she fled to England, and was imprisoned by Elizabeth I, for 19 years. the rest is history. A must visit….lots of history.
The Palace of Holyroodhouse is a palace near Holyrood Park, walking distance from the Old town, very beautiful.
It is very convenient for Trip.com to book foreign attractions. I have been looking for a guide on foreign websites before. Because the interpretation of the English terms is not necessarily very clear, I still hesitate to place an order. Later, I saw on Trip.com that I can make an appointment. It is too convenient and very clear. Chinese explanation, You only need to provide a person's identity information to place an order, reliable! The first stop to Edinburgh is the Holy Lutheran Palace. When you get off the train, you will be shocked by the city scenery of Edinburgh. When you come to the Holy Lutheran Palace, the first Gothic building will come into view. I am so excited. 🥰
Holyrood Is an amazing palace. It is the residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II when she visits Scotland. However, it is more than just the palace of the UK's longest reigning monarch, it was the palace of so many kings and queens before her. It was the palace where Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed when he was trying to win back his father's crown from King George (for all you Outlander fans out there). The palace is beautiful and elaborate, ornately decorated (as all palaces should be) and it has a hall of paintings of all of the Scottish monarchs. Next to the palace is the old Holyrood abbey. It is a very nice spot to take some awesome pictures.
I loved it! A free audio guide (available in multiple languages) is included in your entrance fee, and takes you throughout the palace and into rooms such as the King and Queens chambers with a historic background as you make your way through. During the summer months the garden becomes open to the public.
