The Palace is located at the end of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and has been home to the royal family since the 16th century. Holyrood Palace was originally founded as a monastery in the year 1128.
Queen Elizabeth often spends around a week there at the beginning of summer. She often also carries out a number of official and public engagements during her stay there.
