A must walk. Fun place to relax, mingle grab ice cream and sit. Beautiful landscape and flowers. There is music, singers, speakers and even quiet places to sit. I really enjoyed my time here to avoid the busy city street traffic. Be prepared to walk.

Such a lovely place. Although central to Edinburgh, feels like a quiet walk in the country. Lots of lovely trees and so well kept.

The city planners who designed these gardens (in a potentially discouraging area of railway lines) created something very special, fully worthy of this magnificent capital. Apart from the beauty of the gardens the number of people enjoying them is also a testament to the concept...More

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

We stayed in 11 Brunswick Street earlier this year. It’s within a 15 minute walk or so of Princes Street and has a brasserie so you can also eat there. There are plenty of other restaurants nearby.
