Varrock Palace's main entryway and roof.

Varrock Palace is the official residence of the king of Misthalin, as well as the nation's primary diplomatic and military centre. Since the Fourth Age, Varrock Palace has been a hub of economic, political, and social development within Misthalin. The Palace currently houses King Roald Remanis III and his wife, Queen Ellamaria Remanis. As their full-time residence, it is equipped with kitchens, barracks, dining areas, a church, a large garden, troop housing areas, and other facilities.

Apart from being the home to the majority of Varrock's royal family, the Palace is also the home of the Varrock City Guard, the city's primarily law enforcement agency. The Varrock Palace Secret Guard also occupies the Palace, albeit secretly and presumably from some type of underground tunnel network. The city's knightly order, which has remained largely illusive in recent years, also makes its home in the Palace, although Sir Prysin is the only one to show himself publicly. The Palace is designed to withstand military siege, and has been directly attacked at least twice; once by Lucien in an largely unsuccessful zombie invasion, and more recently by Zemouregal in the Battle of Varrock Castle. It currently plays a large role in the Sanguinesti Liberation War, which is otherwise centred in Morytania.

The Palace is also a diplomatic hub, attracting ambassadors and business representatives from all over Gielinor. Virtually every non-hostile race and nation has established some type of peaceful tie with Misthalin, and most have operated in some way through the Palace. The Varrock Library, one of the largest in the world, is also housed here.

Amongst players, the Palace is popular for its guards, who are commonly killed for combat training and pickpocketed for thieving training and profit. It also houses a farming patch and several species of tree for woodcutting. Its connection to Varrock Square and the Grand Exchange makes it a popular route of travel. The Palace also plays a large role in a number of quests and other in-game activities.


Noteworthy Features

  • In the grounds behind the palace there are Yew trees.
  • On the second floor there is an altar.
  • On the roof there are several dummies which can be punched for Attack experience.
  • The altar is a popular place for "Player Weddings", a trend that started when an unnamed player "married" another player in the church in the north-eastern Wilderness.

  • In the Varrock palace library there is a big white book on display called 'Varrock Census' if players open this book, they will find many names of well known citizens of Varrock and what their jobs are. Halfway down this list is written 'Jeremy Clerksin - Cart Expert', probably a play on the name of British car expert Jeremy Clarkson, host of the popular TV show Top Gear. Clerksin also appears asleep in Varrock Church.
  • There's a safespot for rangers/mages when fighting the Varrock Guards. Simply stay on a side of one of the pillars while the guard is on the other side of the pillar. You can fight them without risking your health points!
  • On the North-West (Bottom Floor) there is a statue with a king appearing to be wearing a Party Hat instead of a crown. Probably because the Party Hat is one of the most expensive items in the game.
  • If you look at the bath in the largest bedroom (the one on your right if you go up the main stairs), you will find that the taps are in the shape of an R for Roald!
  • In a shelf you can find the books 'The King of Varrock and I' (a play on' The King and I'), 'Moby Richard the Pirate' (a play on 'Moby Dick'), 'A Series of Catastrophic and Highly Unpredictable Events' (a play on 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'), 'Found' (A play on 'Lost') and 'Conan the Librarian' (A play on 'Conan the Barbarian').
