‘Great shopping. We walked up and down this busy street during our time in Edinburgh. It is a busy street with many shops to look in, lots of sides streets cone off of this and you can find some good places to eat and drink. If you like shopping then you will enjoy this street.’
– Princes Street Tripadvisor Review
Running parallel to Princes Street is the famous Princes Street Gardens. Here you must see Ross Fountain, recently restored to its full Victorian glory. At the far end, you will find The Parish Church of St Cuthbert, with historic burial places on multiple levels. During the festival, you can enjoy a multistory platform of street craft stalls here. Relax in the summer with ice cream. Or attend the “Summer Sessions” live festival in the park. In winter the park plays a central part in the Hogmanay street celebrations too.
Princes Street is easy to get to, with most major bus routes passing through. For those travelling by train, Waverley Station is at the east end of Princes Street.
