The Official Residence in Scotland of Her Majesty The Queen, The Palace of Holyroodhouse is a working palace used by members of the Royal Family throughout the year for ceremonial and state occasions, including investitures and the celebrated summer Garden Party.
In its romantic setting at the foot of Arthur’s Seat, in the heart of Edinburgh, this magnificent building has played host to royal visitors and events that have changed the course of history. Marriages, treachery, rebellion – and even murder – colour the turbulent stories of its remarkable residents, such as Mary, Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie.
With over 90 illustrations, this souvenir guide chronicles the development of the building from its humble beginnings as an Augustinian abbey in the twelfth century to Charles II’s striking baroque palace we see today.
