Edinburgh is more than a castle and the Royal Military Tattoo. It’s a city full of history, where monarchy and democracy exist side by side.
Probably the most famous street in all of Edinburgh is the Royal Mile. You’ll recognise it immediately, it’s the main street running up that imposing hill. Actually, it’s not just one street, but rather Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street, Canongate and Abbey Strand combined. At the top end is Edinburgh Castle, and at the bottom is the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s residence in Edinburgh.
