About the Tour

Welcome to the ultimate Mary queen of scots tour! We've all read about this gorgeous and fearless monarch in history books but this tour will take you to where it all happened. From the bloody murder of Mary's Italian secretary Rizzio, to the castle where she gave birth to the future king of Britain. You will walk in her footsteps along the royal mile from the fantastic Holyrood Palace where Mary' s tragic story begins to st Giles cathedral where her arch enemy John Knox preached to the edinburgh congregation against the Queen's dancing

and other fun loving exploits!

We will take a look at Mary King's close where the provost's house was in the 16th century and where Mary was kept prisoner after her defeat at Carberry hill. The cries of 'Burn her!' ring down from all these years ago.

We will pass Witch's well where hundreds of men and women were burnt at the stake.

You will hear the unabridged story of the beautiful and I'll fated queen, her life and loves as you witness the scenes where it all took place.
