The Local Area
You are only a short distance from the famous Royal Mile when staying at this hotel. The Royal Mile is the main thoroughfare through the Old Town and runs all the way from Edinburgh Castle to Castle Rock and Holyrood Abbey. This is the busiest tourist street in Edinburgh, alive with shops, restaurants, pubs, monuments, markets and statues.
While you are wandering along The Royal Mile you can stop at Edinburgh Castle. An iconic feature of Edinburgh which is perched on top of the dormant volcanic hill of Castle Rock. The castle dates back to 9BC and offers visitors a wealth of history with monuments, towers and a full day of history and culture. Take a guided tour through the former royal residence and enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views of the city.
Once you have finished at the Edinburgh Castle, make your way back along The Royal Mile to the Holyrood Palace, the official residence to the British Monarch. This palace was founded in 1128 and is open every day except when the royal family are visiting Edinburgh. Here you can visit the seventeenth century apartments and enjoy the beautiful gardens.
Head to the Royal Botanical Gardens, a science centre and major tourist attraction. The gardens were founded in 1670 and span over seventy acres. It is home to 36,000 plants including a herbarium and library.
From here you can head to Arthur’s Seat. This is the main peak of a group of hills and is part of Holyrood Park where you can enjoy the most spectacular views of the city skyline.
