All reviews great shopping high street shops scott monument christmas market rose street old town lots of shops beautiful street waverley station edinburgh castle national gallery tourist shops royal mile jenners primark shoppers fraser
Your average high street, with all the usual shops. The Xmas markets were on the other side of the street. Great views of the castle. Some beautiful architecture. Lots to see and do. Not the best retail experience, but not the worst.
Whilst some of the architecture on this street is amazing and some of the older shop buildings like Jenners for example are worth a visit but it was not the shopping experience I was hoping for. Standard high street shops with lots of souvenir shops...More
We visited in November 2018 expecting a fine example of a shining Scottish city as I had been led to beleive form various tourist and historic accounts.
Oh dear. What we found was this: chewing gum splattered streets, filthy, soot blackened buildings including Scott's monument...More
I was mostly impressed by the views of the Castle and lovely Princess Street Gardens. Not so much by the Princess Street itself. It is a busy shopping street, but I was not impressed by Jenners and a barrage of tacky souvenir shops. This very...More
If you go here don't forget to look up and around you everywhere the architecture of these buildings hundreds of years old is breathtaking. Forget the shops life is about what was left behind by people with amazing vision creating buildings that are not just...More
The person who reviewed Princes street as boring shopping was obviously a man. LOL Princes street is fantastic for women. There are many high-end clothing, fragrances, and department stores for a fun time, Jenners Department store was my favorite
Many historical buildings have been demolished and those that remain are crushed by ugly commercial buildings. Large numbers of dull international chain stores prevail. Walk in the Princesses gardens and turn your back on this.
Very busy street with many shops and souvenir shops.A pleasant walk to the gardens is the main highlight.Souvenir shops mostly cheaper in grassmarket and end of the high street.Tho many shops seem to have the same tourist things.Good for getting around with the bus services.
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

Hallo Tomtisan, sicherlich findet man an der Princes Street viel Geschäfte, die Weltweit , bzw. in vielen Europäischen Ländern kennt. Dennoch findet man hier auch Geschäfte, die viele Schottische Produkte verkaufen. Bei so manchen Geschäften bekommt man auch eine recht gute Beratung.
