If you're doing the touristy run around Edinbugh this is a must see.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, personal Abbey ruins tour, palace and history.
About an hour and a half - seemed longer there was a lot to it.

Travelled with my wife and mother in law . The grounds are beautiful and the abbey is good value for money. However there is a few stair cases to overcome,and like my mother in law found, one staircase leading to Mary queen of Scott's bedroom was difficult to climb.

Included in the price of a ticket to Holyrood Palace, these ruins are interesting, and the Audio tour gives you information about it. A little something extra for your money.

Worth going to see for the history and architecture and views Arthur's seat and Salisbury Craig. No photos allowed inside. Long tour inside, but free roaming outside in the gardens.
