    Great day out for the historian in our family. Not cheap but worth the visit.
    Plenty to see and do. Can't miss the crown jewels.

    Spent about 5 hours here and could have stayed longer. It had a vast and diverse collection too hard to try and describe. I would plan a day to fully explore this museum

    The weather was “cracking the flags” the London eye must be the most £ grossed tourist attraction in London , it’s not cheap for the 30 min ride and now with the fast track it’s a bit more expensive .
    The queues are long , and the view are stunning - you know you can book the Sky Garden “ walkie-talkie building and it’s free.
    My words are only a opinion , the London
    Eye will continue to reap in the money ……whatever my opinion is .

    Edinburgh Castle is not what most Americans think of as a castle. Yes, there are parapets and portcullises. But there are also cannon, some of them deeply medieval, some of them very recent. And there are rooms full of swords and pikes, and others with the Royal Jewels. And whiskey tasting. And soldiers. In addition to being an historic relic, the castle retains elements of much more recent past, from the National War Museum, to the National War Memorial, to ongoing events like the Tattoo.

    The result is something of a jumble, but entertaining and informative in a variety of ways. It's a history book with pages that reach all the way to the present.

    Worth the cost and time investment. Take your time, and enjoy the various features.

    A true Icon to London and British Isles in general.
    Such a sight especially to see at nighttime
    Great feeling to be had when you walk along it, knowing you are walking across one of the great city landmarks
    London would not be the same without it

    Van Dyck, Rubens, Monet, El Greco, Titian, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Tintoretto, Manet etc., etc. etc.. Name an artist and there's possibly one of their works in this amazing gallery. Also lots of medieval artworks which are my favourites.

    There's so much to see here, so many rooms.

    Highly recommended.

    A must see while in London,any thing and everything you could wish to see and all for free! We especially enjoyed the Egyptology section and were amazed at all of the other sections as well. You need a whole day so you don't miss anything.

    Two outstanding things: (1) stays open until 10 pm on Fridays (although some galleries close at 5:45 pm), and (2) the Cast Courts have huge reproductions of monuments and sculptures from around the world -- everything from Michelangelo’s David, to the 120' tall Trajan’s Column (cut into two 60' tall pieces), the entire front of the cathedral at Santiago de Compostela, to mummy casks. Also, it tends not to be nearly as crowded as the other museums. Yes, it is free and does not require you to get tickets beforehand. There are other interesting galleries. One thing not to miss is the cafe -- which is London's best museum cafe. Don't be fooled by the host area who's white wall hides the magnificent dining room. There is also the option of having a drink and something to eat in the John Madejski Garden, which is pleasant on a warm evening.

    I loved it, so much history. Our Guide (Katie) was great!! Very knowledgeable and about more than just Mary Kings Close. She had a good sense of humour too!

    This was a beautiful visit. You can do the audio tour at your own pace and look at things for as you like. It's a little surreal though wonderful to think this is where the Queen and the Royal family travelled the world! The kids weren't quite so interested so we spent less time there than I'd have liked but still a highly recommended day out.

    It's around 20 min from the city centre. Reserve at least 2 or 3 hours to do the hiking. Takes around 30 min to climb, be careful and enjoy every second.
    The stones might be slippery, so go with appropriate shoes. The best view of Edinburgh, - What a city!
