Useful information for your visit to Edinburgh Castle

Useful information for your visit to Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is one of Scotland's largest castles and one of the country's most popular visitor attractions. There is lots to see and do and it is worth planning what to see in advance to get the most out of your day at the castle.

  • 1. Online tickets

    It is possible to arrive at the castle and buy tickets on the day but you can skip the queues by pre-booking your tickets online. Pick up an audio guide on arrival and see the castle at your own pace.

  • 2. Start at the top

    Most visitors to the castle start their visit at the drawbridge and gradually make their way up. Avoid the queues and see the Scottish Crown Jewels without the usual lengthy wait by climbing the hill to Crown Square and then working your way back to the entrance.

  • 3. One O'Clock gun

    One thing you're not going want to miss is the daily firing of the one o'clock gun on the Mills Mount Battery. Dating back to the times when ships out at sea needed an accurate method of setting their clocks, the firing attracts big crowds. Watch from further up the hill for the best view of the proceedings.
