Edinburgh West End

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.
