Located in Edinburgh, the Palace of Holyroodhouse is easily accessible by train, bus or private vehicle. The palace is home to Queen Elizabeth during Holyrood week, which runs from the end of June and into early July, where she and The Duke of Edinburgh entertain approximately 8,000 guests. Even when royalty isn't on site, there is plenty to see and do. Take in the Royal and Historic Apartments and check out the Abbey as well. Guided audio tours add an extra element and help turn the experience into more of an educational one. The Cafe at the Palace is a good place to eat and recharge your battery, while the Palace of Holyroodhouse Shop offers countless royal souvenirs.
