I have to agree and confess that the St. Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile is the most magnificent church of Edinburgh but then St. Mary's Cathedral at Palmerston Place has a charm of its own.

Most visitors will just walk down Palmerston Place and gaze upon the gothic cathedral with the 3 spires - but go on in on a sunny day and look to the right as the sun floods in through the Paolozzi stained glass window. Amazing. Try...More
Strolling around this beautiful part of Edinburgh, we happpened upon St Mary's Cathedral, where the service of Evensong was in full swing. We stayed for the service and enjoyed the beautiful singing of the choir and the thoughtful prayers of the priest.
Looking forward to visiting Edinburgh on the 14/15 July and in particular this beautiful cathedral where my daughters amazing school chapel choir will be performing during three services over the weekend. For service times refer to St Mary’s. Thoroughly recommended to all and what’s more...More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
