Royal Mile

The heart of Scotland’s historic capital, the Royal Mile is overlooked by impressive, towering tenements, between which cobbled closes and narrow stairways interlock to create a secret underground world. Peppered with attractions such as The Real Mary King’s Close or the Scottish Storytelling Centre, historical sites like St Giles' Cathedral and some of the best eating and drinking spots in the city, the Royal Mile offers much to see and do.
