The main street is the Royal Mile, a wide thoroughfare lined with pubs, restaurants and hotels that runs on a downwards slope from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Place. From this main spine many tiny streets branch off, each offering endless treasures to discover. The area even has a number of underground hidden passages and vaults that remain from previous phases of construction.
