    New Town
    Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
    until after dark when strappy dresses come out to

    Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

    Th Elder York Guest House doesn’t have any car parking facilities. However it is close to public transport. The airport tram is within 5 minutes and the Waverley Train Station only 10 minutes walk away.
