The Scottish Parliament

Holyrood | Edinburgh EH9 1SP

Situated in the heart of the Old Town, and designed by Spanish architect Enric Miralles, the Scottish Parliament building opened in 2004 and has since welcomed more than two million visitors. It is usually open Monday to Friday and visitors can enjoy a free guided tour and, depending on the day of visit, even see the parliament live and in action. Additionally, it hosts a wide range of events and exhibitions, such as the annual World Press Photography Exhibition, and events that have a direct relation to the world of parliamentary committees. There is also a cafe and a souvenir shop, thus ticking just about every box for the intrepid visitor.
