Royal Mile hotels
The Royal Mile is a stretch of celebrated medieval landmarks located in the Old Town of Edinburgh, Scotland. Pacing down the east shoulder of a dormant volcano, this historic thoroughfare is actually longer than a single mile, and truly royal in scope. The Royal Mile’s proud status as a designated UNESCO World Heritage site attracts thousands of admirers from all over the world to walk amongst this timeless stretch of Scottish history. Though the area has become more commercialized over the years, visitors strolling the Royal Mile can still sense the Middle Ages amongst its surrounding architecture and ancient landscapes. This enchanting part of Scotland is divided into several holiday destinations but is generally made up of four distinct sections—Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street, and Canongate—each infused with its own distinct medieval charm.
- Visit Edinburgh Castle, the birthplace of James VI of Scotland and Edinburgh's oldest castle that dates back over 1000 years.
- Enjoy the Scotch Whisky Experience tour, which demonstrates to visitors the whisky-making process and includes an official tasting of Scotland’s national drink.
- Admire a breathtaking panoramic view of Edinburgh atop Camera Obscura, one of the town’s most popular tourist attractions.
Couches available for rent in London, Manchester, and Glasgow can transport travellers efficiently to Edinburg. Visitors travelling by couch should get off at the St. Andrew Square station, which is only a 10-minute walk from the Royal Mile. Visitors travelling by train should get off at the Waverly Railway Station, located a mere 5-minute walk from the Scottish thoroughfare. Regular shuttle buses are available at the Edinburg airport for quick, convenient transport to the Waverly Station. The 1, 6, 34, and 35 bus lines also regularly serve the Royal Mile vicinity.
