About the Tour

Welcome to the latest Mary queen of scots tour! We've all read about this beautiful and fearless monarch in the 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 Great Britain. You will walk in her footsteps along the Royal Mile from the fantastic Holyrood Palace, where Mary's tragic story begins at St Giles Cathedral, where her arch nemesis John Knox preached to the Edinburgh congregation against the Queen's Ball and others. fun and loving feats. We'll take a look at the Mary King closure where the provost's home stood in the 16th century and where Mary was held prisoner after her defeat at Carberry Hill. The screams of 'Burn it!' get the attention of all these years ago. We will pass through the Witch's Well, where hundreds of men and women were burned at the stake. You will hear the entire story of the beauty and I will predict the queen, her life and her loves while you witness the scenes where everything happened.
