Falkland Palace & Garden image

Experience a day in the life of the Stuart monarchs at Falkland Palace, their country residence for 200 years and a favourite place of Mary Queen of Scots. Set in the heart of Falkland conservation village and surrounded by extensive gardens, this partly restored renaissance palace is the perfect to white away an afternoon. Part of the palace is in ruins but the original and reconstructed rooms are packed with 17th century Flemish tapestries and elaborate paintings.
The beautiful tranquil grounds are worth a visit alone. They are home to the oldest real of royal tennis court in Britain, built for King James the V.
The grounds also include ruins of the 12th century castle of Falkland, extensive gardens designed by Percy cane and an ancient orchard with a wild flower meadow.
