Christmas at the official residence in Scotland of Her Majesty the Queen.

As part of the Christmas display at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the table in the Royal Dining Room will be laid with a silver service, presented to George V and Queen Mary in 1935 to mark their Silver Jubilee. Made in Edinburgh, the service was commissioned specifically for use at the Palace with each piece engraved with the Scottish Coat of Arms. Also included in the display will be pieces from a Bloor Derby porcelain dessert service ordered by Queen Victoria and first exhibited in 1842 during the week of Christmas. On selected dates in December, visitors can also enjoy an Exclusive Evening Tour of the royal residence. Led by an expert guide, the tours offer a special behind-the-ropes experience including the special Christmas display. All tickets include a glass of champagne and festive mince pie, a copy of the Official Souvenir Guide and a 20% discount at Royal Collection Trust shops.
