The mile is steeped in history, with a lot of amazing buildings, not counting the shops. Some of the little lanes lead to interesting hidden Jen. Great fun finding the interesting one

If you haven't been then Edinburgh needs to be on your list. Fantastic city with lots of hidden gems. Very friendly people, plenty of bars and eateries and lots to do. We will be returning again in the summer of 2021

The Royal Mile is the most beautiful street in UK. The feeling of past and present mixing together, it's like travelling back in time.

A stroll up/down the royal mile is very picturesque but for those who are not new to Edinburgh the street is rather too full of tourist tat shops. There are some fabulous and not to be missed attractions on this road so do visit, but if you want better shops head over to the Grassmarket area

First of all, let’s deal with the negative aspect of the Royal Mile. Yes, it has lots of tourist shops, many of which sell tacky, predictable items of stereotypical Scottish produce. Personally I can’t stand these places, but accept that many tourists are drawn to them so - each to his own I guess. But it’s important to look beyond that commercial aspect and appreciate what other gems are here to discover. Effectively, it’s all about the buildings - and what beauties there are. Primarily, you have the Castle at one end and Holyrood Palace at the other. There is also the Cathedral, the wonderful structure of John Knox’s house, grand buildings of state, court and local government, and wonderful, ancient dwellings - many of which are now shops or fabulous old pubs. At the bottom you also have a fabulous new building, the Scottish Parliament, which I consider to be a beautiful structure and one that is well worth visiting. Many of the above mentioned buildings have narrow alleyways in between. These are called “closes” in Scots and many of them have fascinating stories behind them or interesting things to discover. The secret is to take your time on the Royal Mile. Walk slowly and continue to look up at the buildings. Savour the sense of history and explore the various nooks and crannies.
