  • During the visit of the Palace of Holyroodhouse... The visit ends with this place where Marie Stuart, widow of the King of France Francis II, married the cruel Lord Darnley...

  • After the visit to the Castle and with imagination you can enjoy the view of this Abbey, with a few elements that endure over time very interesting.

  • Are the ruins of the Abbey annexed to the Palace; It is more interesting to his story that the remains themselves, although it is a beautiful place.

  • Beautiful and full of inspiration. We took the tour of the Holyrood Palace and therefore came by this wonderful Abbey. Not much is left from it, but it is still quite the view.
  • Not much left of the Abbey, but very interesting and nice to look around. Great views of the surroundings.
  • You end the palace tour through the abbey. You cannot access it without having purchased tickets.
  • Not much there to see unfortunately. Access to the abbey goes via the palace and requires tickets.
  • It's nice, not bad :) maybe I was expecting more, but anyway it was nice!
