We stayed at a hotel on Waterloo Place a few years ago, but have not been back to that part of the City for a few years. It is an impressive thoroughfare, a wide road with excellent architecture on each side. The backdrop of Calton...More
We exited at Waterloo Place yesterday after our descent from Calton Hill, having entered Calton Hill from the other end at Royal Terrace/Blenheim Place.
Waterloo Place is like an extension to Princes Street at the eastern end, still very centrally situated, and with hotels, yet...More
To me this would be the tourist centre of the town, right next to Waverley station, sitting on Princes street, loads of hotels, people, public transport buzzing everywhere. Just looking at the reviews I saw there was a nice old cemetery there, missed that, shame,...More

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.
