The charming west end of Edinburgh dates from the 1800s. With a mix of Georgian and Victorian architecture and grand cobbled streets, it has its own community and village feel. Beginning at the west end of Princes Street and stretching out past Haymarket Station, this is an easy part of the city to reach on foot, by bus or rail. There are plenty of things to do and places to eat and drink in the West End. Along with fashion boutiques, stylish gift shops and other independent outlets.
Edinburgh West End Shopping
Most of the shops in the West End are centred around William Street and Stafford Street. With outlets selling clothes, jewellery, accessories, home decor, stationary and gifts, it’s the perfect place for an Edinburgh shopping trip. It has a very creative, relaxed energy, with lots of diverse stores to explore. This eclectic mix of retailers, combined with a great sense of community, is what gives the West End it’s unique identity.
You can stop for refreshments in one of the lovely local cafes, bars or restaurants. Before visiting local attractions such as Edinburgh Gin Distillery, The Georgian House or St Mary’s Cathedral. Or, catch a show at the Royal Lyceum, Traverse Theatre or Usher Hall.
