Palace of Holyroodhouse

The Palace of Holyroodhouse offers a great day out for families. Families are invited to the Gallery and the current exhibition Gold. You can also learn more about the heritage of the site through taking part in drawing activities and trails, to really bring the Palace to life.

Learn more about the Palace and its most famous residents with our interactive audio tour designed for families to enjoy together. You can visit the Palace Family Room and dress up like royalty in historic costume and choose from a selection of stories, games and creative activities. Pick up a family activity trail and explore Holyrood Abbey which is nearly 900 years old and explore the Palace gardens- a hidden secret in the centre of Edinburgh. Explore woodland paths and giant lawns and discover how the gardens have been used by royalty past and present.

Open daily 09:30 – 18:00 (last admission 16:30).
