    TBH the castle is really dull and not worth £18 entry. Military buffs will love it, but overall we were bemused at its popularity.

    Touristy, not much of a castle really. The property has two primary uses: money through tourists and official government business. It's interesting, just not worth £17 per person.

    A rip off (17pp), half price for English and free for Scotland Heritage members. The castle is a theme park rather than a historical place - too many tourists, shops and cafes. Go for the view only.

    The say last entrance is at 5... and close at 6... but at 5:30 they start to close all...
  • Craig V.
    Arrive around 2pm to see the cannon firing.
  • Thas S.
    There is shorter way to go on top by using the stairs from Grassmarket.

    Will definitely be in the minority, but I don't recommend going in. Overpriced for what you get to see inside and you don't feel like you're in a castle but just a museum. £3 extra for audio guide.

    Breathtaking view on the outside, boring on the inside. Royal chambers have been transformed into an "exhibition" of long ass stair climbing only to end with a small display of the Crown Jewels.

    Does not worth to get inside - specially if packed. 17$ to see one crown and empty rooms...

    Beautifull old and historic castle, where some parts are still active. They shoot in the aire around 13.00 clock. You have free tours so dont have to pay for the audio :)

    Worth paying for! Came here after lunch; spent almost half the day here, exploring the castle grounds and the many towers, dungeons and rooms. The oldest building in Edinburgh is here! Don't miss it!

    Unlimited (nominally free) access with a Historic Scotland membership - £49/year, less when paid by monthly direct debit. Members can skip the long queues and get tickets at the smaller info centre.

    Avoid the audio tour, dull and not worth it. Instead spend time looking at the history and not rushing through like some do; the old jail cells and items built by prisoners are the most evocative.
