The trip includes a guided tour of the historic and state apartments of the palace building (including a private chamber that is not available to the visiting public), a brief visit to the temporary Fashioning a Reign clothing exhibition, and coffee and pastries in the Palace cafe afterwards.

Postcode: EH8 8DX
Parking: There is a (paid) car park to the south of the Palace building.
Public transport: Buses 35 and 6 stop just outside the Palace. Many services go along North Bridge, around 10-15 minutes walk up the Royal Mile.
