Afternoon Tea Experience

Welcome to the Tea Rooms at Edinburgh Castle where you can indulge yourself or treat a loved one to an afternoon tea experience, which also includes admission to the castle.

Our Tea Room is located in the heart of the castle, Crown Square. The walls have been painted a rich Dutch blue, embellished with touches of copper/brass, vintage mirrors and botanical foliage to keep things feeling fresh, modern but still with a rugged Scottish ambience. The perfect setting to relax and enjoy afternoon tea.
