In a striking setting at the end of the famous Royal Mile in Edinburgh, The Café at the Palace of Holyroodhouse is one of the ultimate afternoon tea destinations. Its outdoor terrace in the historic Mews Courtyard gives diners views over Arthur's Seat, and the tea is even served in specially commissioned chinaware.

Every part of the Café at the Palace of Holyroodhouse afternoon tea menu has been carefully crafted to make it a traditional treat.
