83 reviews of Edinburgh Castle

A long history, full of legends and fairy tales

The spectacular Edinburgh Castle dominates the city from the top of a large, volcanic rock. The silhouette of this medieval fortress against the blue sky or overcast by violet clouds is unforgettable. It is, without a doubt, the symbolic heart of the beautiful city of Edinburgh. The castle, still in use, and very attractive, has a long history, full of legends and fairy tales. Protected by cliffs, access to the fort is only possible via the High Street, located in the Old Town. During the summer months you can visit between 9.30 and 18 pm. During winter, the opening times are from 9:30 am to 17 pm.

A reconstruction of the castle's prison where thousands of American and French prisoners lived from 1757 to 1815. The exhibition looks at the difficult living conditions in the dormitories, and uses shadows and voices to recreate the atmosphere of that time. The doors contain historical graffiti.

Edinburgh Castle is very beautiful but there are a lot of visitors. Also the crown jewels were a bit disappointing because there was only one room and you had to lineup for a long time.

Nice castle, quite big, it’ll take you several hours to see it all. The views of Princess Street are breathtaking. It’s usually very crowded, so try to visit it early in the morning if you want a better experience
