Royal Mile

Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile in Scotland is the busiest street in the cities Old Town, and runs in a downhill slope from Edinburgh Castle to the famous Holyrood Palace (the official Scottish residence of the Monarch of Britain). The Royal Mile isn't actually just one single street, but is in fact made up of five different streets - Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street, Canongate and Abbey Strand, and wasn't actually named 'The Royal Mile' until 1901, when W M Gilbert coined the name in his book 'Edinburgh in the Nineteenth Century' - a name that was used again in a 1920's guidebook of the area.

These days, the Royal Mile is one of Edinburgh's most visited attractions, and is home to a wide mix and range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Every August, during the world famous Edinburgh Festival, the streets of the Royal Mile become extremely busy with flocking tourists, not to mention the dozens of street performers, buskers and other entertainers that fill the streets and captivate the visitors.

At the beginning of 2012, concerns were raised that the amount of tourist merchandise (locally called 'Tartan Tat') being sold along the Royal Mile was cheapening the Miles image, and turning it into a corny, vulgar experience. The City of Edinburgh Council held a summit meeting, and are now making drastic changes to morph the Royal Mile into a high-end, five star attraction.

Did you know, despite its name, the Royal Mile is actually 107 yards longer than a standard mile.
