This is a so-called "Royal mile" street, from Edinburgh Castle to Hollywood Palace, a mile long, known as "one of the most attractive streets in the world". There are many royal buildings on both sides of the street. It is the busiest tourist street in the old city of Edinburgh. Only Prince Street in the new city of Edinburgh can compete with it. During the annual Edinburgh Art Festival, the high street becomes the city's central focus, crowded with tourists and street artists. A church-like building at the west end is the famous Scottish Whisky Heritage Center. It can go for free drinks. St. Gills Cathedral, which is shaped like the Crown of Scotland, is also on the side of the street. There are famous political economists on the square. Famous Principle" The theory of the invisible hand "Adam Smith's statue, the theory of the invisible hand" means that supply and demand are automatically balanced and prices are automatically adjusted according to the invisible hand of supply and demand, rather than changing at will! How profound! Many Scots will hold weddings here, and sometimes street artists in Scottish skirts play bagpipes in the square, and the sound is very loud. It sounds wonderful and reminds visitors to stay in Scotland's ancient centre from time to time. On Royal Mile Avenue, you can sit in a bar or choose Scottish local gifts. Cashmere scarf is a famous Scottish product. Its price is around RMB400. There is also a Museum of Childhood, which has a collection of all kinds of fun children's toys, from cradle-age babies to traditional circus props and puppet clothes popular with teenagers. Visitors to the Edinburgh Museum will have a better understanding of Edinburgh. Hollywood Palace and Hollywood Park are located at the other end of Royal Mile Avenue. When the Queen comes to Scotland, she lives in Hollywood Palace.
The road is a flagstone Avenue parallel to Prince Street, a mile long avenue linking the two royal castles, Hollywood Palace and Edinburgh Castle. Because the castle is at the top of the hill and Hollywood Palace is at the foot of the hill, the whole street is actually winding along the ridge with a clear slope. With a long history, ancient buildings, melodious Scottish bagpipes and pure whiskey, Edinburgh has a unique charm without losing its modern color and vitality. Because August is the annual Edinburgh International Art Festival, it was very expensive to book hotels in Edinburgh at that time. Generally, hotels are more than two thousand one nights and five-star hotels are more than four thousand, but the atmosphere of the whole city is different. Royal Mile is very busy and has a lot of tourists. There are also various performance groups to perform road shows, most of which are highly interactive with tourists, as if they were a sea of joy! ___________ There are many wool and cashmere shops on Royal Mile. Cashmere scarves cost about 40-50 pounds a piece, and wool is cheaper. There are also many checked skirts. They look good in all colors. I also gave my daughter one, wool, 29 pounds.
After the tour, we left Edinburgh Castle and walked down the hillside along Royal Mile Avenue to watch street performers perform. Royal Mile Avenue is the Central Avenue of the old city of Edinburgh. The main street begins at Edinburgh Castle and ends at Hollywood Palace. It is about a mile long. The streets are crisscrossed by alleys and buildings, which constitute the skeleton of the old city of Edinburgh. Walking on the ground polished by stone, the buildings on both sides of the street are simple and magnificent, and the whole street is full of historical flavor. As we walk, we can see how attractive the scenery on both sides of the street is when we walk for an hour on this one-kilometer journey.
The Royal Mile, a mile from the Royal Palace, is finally Edinburgh Castle. It is the most famous street in Edinburgh. It is crowded with tourists, shops and hotels. It is even more lively near the castle. It has become a street of juggling and the whole Edinburgh overpass.
Royal Mile Avenue is a road from Edinburgh Castle to the Holy Cross Palace. It is said to be a mile long. There are many old buildings and shops selling all kinds of special goods on this street.

Out of Edinburgh Castle is Royal Mile Avenue, which leads to the city centre, with shops on both sides, people coming and going, and the bustling performance of Scottish bagpipes artists there.

The Royal Mile Avenue in Edinburgh is the essence of the old city of Edinburgh. It takes a mile from the Parliament Building to the Edinburgh Castle, hence its name. He is the core main road of the old city of Edinburgh, with a large number of ancient buildings and attractions on both sides, as well as restaurants and bars, and is one of the commercial streets that Edinburgh must visit when traveling.
Royal Mile Avenue is the Central Avenue of Edinburgh's old city. It begins at Edinburgh Castle and ends at St. Cross Palace. The alleys on both sides are interlaced, forming the skeleton of the old city. Round stone paved ground has long been polished shing, the buildings along the main road are simple and magnificent, full of historical atmosphere. Every afternoon, street performers in Scottish skirts play bagpipes and remind visitors to stay in the old centre of Scotland. Royal Mile Avenue is divided into four sections. A small slope in front of the castle is called Castlehill, where the Scottish Whisky Cultural Heritage Center is located. The next section is called the Lawnmarket. The intersection across George IV Bridge Street began to be called High Street, and St. Giles Church was on the high street. Like most cities in Britain, High Street is the center of Edinburgh and the busiest commercial area. Finally, after the intersection of St. Mary Street, a section called the Canongate, pedestrians gradually sparse, surrounded by more medieval buildings, the end of the road is the Palace of the Saint Cross.
My favorite street in Edinburgh is Royal Mile. One reason why this street is called Royal Mile is that it is about a mile long. Another reason is that it connects two important palaces in Scottish history, Edinburgh Castle and Hollywood Palace. It is indeed "Royal Mile". Old streets with old houses are heartbreaking. Here is the starting point for exploring Edinburgh's history. The main street is not wide, unlike our usual street, the center is a terrace pavement, but the sidewalk is paved with green bricks. At first I thought it was similar to a pedestrian street. Later I learned that it was open to traffic, but not many. Walking from the westernmost Edinburgh Castle to the eastern Hollywood Palace, you will encounter many famous places in Edinburgh, such as Esplande, St. Giles Cathedral, Museum of Childhood, Lawnmarket, High Street, Canongate and so on, all over restaurants, bars, shops and hostels. During the day, tourists come and go, and street performers display their performances, and people are very busy. At night, the ghost tour comes on, wearing black cloaks and gentleman's caps, and guides stand in the corner of the Castle Square to attract customers. At night, they visit the underground city and haha. Maybe it's time for ghosts to be busy....
