Featured Event

The Honours of Scotland

More information and event dates »

Over 100 years since the Crown Jewels were packed away, following the Act of Union, Walter Scott was given permission by King George to search the castle, and bring them out of storage.

This story deals with their 'rediscovery', and with an earlier time when the Regalia were buried to keep them safe from Cromwell's army.

This event is included in the normal admission price. Tickets can be bought online in advance to beat the queues or purchased on the day.
