Experience the awe-inspiring Edinburgh Castle, a majestic stronghold perched on Castle Rock, embodying Scotland’s rich history and legacy for countless centuries. As you approach, the castle’s commanding presence and breathtaking views of the city captivate your senses. Our friendly and knowledgeable guides from VisitUK, our dedicated brand specializing in trips, tours, and excursions, are ready to illuminate the castle’s fascinating history, unveiling the secrets of the Crown Jewels, the Stone of Destiny, and the regal Great Hall that bear witness to Scotland’s royal past.

The Esplanade gracefully slopes in front of the castle, while the Spur stands as a testament to the 16th-century fortification. Originally built as a parade ground in 1753 and expanded in 1845, the Esplanade now serves as a remarkable venue for the renowned Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Explore the Half Moon Battery and the Royal Palace, which grace the Esplanade’s left, adding to the castle’s allure.

While Edinburgh Castle is under the ownership of Scottish Ministers and managed by the Army, the New Barracks block and military museums, as well as the castle itself, are overseen by Historic Environment Scotland, an executive department of the Scottish Government. The Guardroom, located within the castle entrance, serves as a shared space for Historic Environment Scotland and the Army.
