What people are saying:

The Royal Mile is one of the most colourful streets of Edinburgh and throughout the years thanks to events, buskers, festival and the preservation of its historic buildings, it’s still a lovely place to visit and walk, for both locals and tourists.There are many things to see, Saint Giles, John Knox house, and of course Edinburgh’s Castle and the Royal palace of Holyrood, from which the street got its name. A mile, a royal mile, connecting the castle and the palace.If you have the time, enjoy (and finance) one of local buskers, great entertainment! And go whenever there’s a market/fair, you’ll find something nice and unexpected to bring home from your trip.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Royal Mile is a succession of streets which form the main thoroughfare of the Old Town of the city of Edinburgh. As the name suggests, the Royal Mile is approximately one Scots mile long, and runs between two foci of history in Scotland, from Edinburgh Castle at the top of the Castle Rock down to Holyrood Abbey. The streets which make up the Royal Mile are (west to east) Castle Esplanade, Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street, Canongate and Abbey Strand. The Royal Mile is Edinburgh Old Town's busiest tourist street, rivalled only by Princes Street in the New Town.
