  • Simply stunning and factually fascinating journey through the I intermingling of the Danish, Russian and British Royal families. In paintings, poignant hand written letters between monarchs and of course the costumes and Faberge gifts exchanged. A delight and education in form, art and history. Do not miss.
  • If you enjoy art and you are in Edinburgh on a wet day this is where I recommend. The staff are helpful and very courteous. What a civilised place it is. The building is beautifully designed, the collection superbly managed, and the gem of an exhibition exhibition well presented, the perfect size, to my taste. These are some of the freshest looking four hundred year old paintings I have ever seen. The excellent exhibition on Charles II and power was so good I went back with one of my sons. Can't wait for the next one.
  • Fantastic exhibition rooms. The staff are very polite & helpful. The audio headsets are included in the admission price.
  • Holyrood House is a beautiful palace, tours with audio so no guided ones which is good. Wedding costumes of Prince Harry and wife were there temporarily. Nice shop as well.
  • One of the best historic place tours we have done. Excellent av commentary.
