‘Edinburgh is such a beautiful city in general but honestly these gardens are a highlight of any visit. The fountain is beautiful and the gardens are usually well maintained it is a nice break away from the busy streets.’
– PRINCES STREET GARDENS TRIPADVISOR REVIEW
This pretty little cottage was built in 1886 for the Head Gardener. However, it is now used by the city council and Ross Development Trust as a fundraising base.
This outdoor venue regularly hosts concerts and live events during Edinburgh’s summer and winter festivals. Including the spectacular Hogmanay celebrations, which take place each New Year’s Eve in Princes Street Gardens.
Recently restored with a new French-inspired colour scheme, this working fountain is a prominent feature in Princes Street Gardens. Perfectly placed below Edinburgh Castle, it is an Insta-worthy photo spot!
During the summer months, be sure to check out the blooming Floral Clock. Located by the steps leading into the gardens from the bottom of The Mound. This amazing, fully working clock has featured here annually since 1903. Each year it has a new design to celebrate an event or cause from the current year.
