Edinburgh Castle - for the mums as well as the masses

At the height of the Fringe and International Festival, Edinburgh Castle plays host to an eclectic range of customers including tourists, locals indulging in their city’s splendor and corporate visitors who want to be at the heart of Edinburgh’s cultural atmosphere.

As Scotland’s number one paid attraction, customers desire greater flexibility and crave a more bespoke experience that makes their time at the venue memorable, unique and removed from the masses. During August, in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, a new hospitality and tourism plan will cater for these demands.

Packages include a first class array of options including fine dining across a stunning choice of venues within the castle. The castle also offers private tours, integrated into private dining packages or you can pre-book and explore the Stone of Destiny, the Royal Palace and Mons Meg for a family birthday.

Enjoy a traditional catch up with your friends and their mums in the newly refurbished Tea Rooms. Packages with special group (up to 100) rates for Afternoon Tea are also available if you’re not looking to hire the many stunning and historic rooms for an exclusive event.
