Cream Tea in Palm Court

Indulge in the traditional British afternoon refreshment of Cream Tea, served daily in the Palm Court at the hotel. Relax in the elegant surroundings to the soft chinking of fine china tea cups and light harp music as you dine on an award-winning afternoon tea of finger sandwiches, cakes and pastries, all washed down with tea or champagne.

Cream Tea in Palm Court is the perfect way to revitalise after a busy morning of sightseeing around the streets of Edinburgh, and a must-do British experience that can inspire grand memories of your trip to Edinburgh.

The Castle

Perched on a steep volcanic rock dominating the city skyline, Edinburgh Castle is a truly majestic sight and the city's premier landmark. Harbouring centuries of royal history, from the Iron Age through the Wars of Independence, the Castle is as fascinating as it is enchanting.

A military base since the 1600s, Edinburgh Castle hosts the famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo each year during the Edinburgh Festival. Enjoy sweeping views across the city from the castle grounds, marvel at the Scottish Crown Jewels and wander around the impressive military museums to learn about the history of this impressive fortress.
