  • Great to see the ruins of the Abbey and a welcome addition to the cost of entry to the Palace. Best on a sunny day, but you can't always choose! 
  • It is worth paying the entrance of Holyrood Palace only to see the Abbey. Ruins remain the charm that had and grace is that its appearance has not been altered with restorations.

  • As part of the tour of the Palace of Holyrood it was interesting to see the ruins. You can't visit the Abbey on its own.

  • 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!
