Royal Mile

Royal Mile

The Royal Mile in Edinburgh is the collective name of the streets that form the main thoroughfare through the city's historic Old Town. As its name suggests The Royal Mile is approximately one mile long (1.6km) and stretches from Holyrood Abbey at the bottom to Edinburgh Castle at the top. Many of the locals refer to the Royal Mile as "High Street" but officially this name only refers to one stretch. The five streets that make up the Royal Mile are Abbey Stand, Canongate, High Street, Lawn Market and Castle Hill. Leading off these main streets there are numerous narrow alleyways. In addition to Edinburgh Castle, which is the most visited tourist attraction in Scotland and the Abbey, the Royal Mile also passes a number of other tourist attractions including Mary King's Close, St Giles Cathedral, the Tolbooth Kirk, Parliament House and several museums. The Royal Mile is fully accessible to visits and there are no admission charges to enter the general area but individual admission fees apply for many of the specific attractions.
