Lots of shops, old buildings, churches, cafes, street entertainers and lots of people watching. Really enjoyable walk.

Busy in the day, nice and quiet at night. With beautiful views of the Castle, the gardens and many other sights worth seeing. Never too far away from a cold pint in a warm pub.

Generally just shopping street, please include also the parallel roads into the experience. We were lucky to still experience the Xmas market during oour stay, which adds a lot of flavor. Otherwise more shopping with fantastic view on castle.

What a shame nice views of the castle on one side plenty of shops on the other, but spoilt by the endless beggers and people sleeping rough, in fact it is better to shop in the shops off princes street

Princes Street and Gardens
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
