The Royal Mile Summary

The Royal Mile: A Comprehensive Guide by Jan-Andrew Henderson

There are several books about the Royal Mile, so why buy this particular one? The reason is, it covers everything you need to know - all the little closes, wynds and courts running off the main street, that people often miss, with a handy rating guide to the most interesting ones. It contains the significant buildings and monuments, noted pubs, restaurants and modern visitor attractions. It recounts the Mile's long and spectacular history, including all its incredible characters. It has evocative pictures, fun facts and even lists the Old Town's notorious haunted sites. And it's written by an award-winning novelist who spent more than twenty years working as a Royal Mile guide. The book is simple to use. You start at Edinburgh Castle on top of the Mile and work your way to Holyrood Palace at the bottom. By the time you get to the end, you'll be an expert on one of the most fascinating streets in the world.
