At the foot of the Royal Mile lies The Palace of Holyrood House. Dating back to 1503 and once a residence of Mary Queen of Scots, Holyrood Palace is the Queen's residence at the end of June each year. Prince Charles also resides here one week of the year. The palace is open to visitors outside of these times.
 

Also worth a visit and just across the road is the iconic Scottish Parliament building which opened in 2004 and offers free guided tours six days a week. Visitors can attend parliament debates free of charge.
 

Lovers of the outdoors can take a walk or cycle around Holyrood Park, climb Arthur's Seat or Salisbury Crags and take in the stunning views over the whole city of Edinburgh.
