Great surroundings and view of Edinburgh Castle, everyone must walk once on this street if visiting the capital. The buildings are pretty mixed, but you can shop 'till you drop..

Not just a good area for shopping but so much more to do. Beautiful princes street gardens across from the shops, views of the castle and stunning architecture to take in.

The gardens and castle on the south side are wonderful. The shopping side is a pretty ugly mix match of buildings, phone shops and tartan tat.

Our hotel was nearby, so we walked Princes street to get to Waverly Station and just for shopping and restaurants. The number of shops and department stores makes it a mecca for shoppers, and tourists love the many souvenir shops that have a huge selection compared to other streets where souvenir shops are ten to a block! At times, the traffic with buses, taxis, and cars as well as peak hours for tourists and residents returning from work make for shoulder-to-shoulder crowds. There are times when the crowds are thinner (after dinner and after morning commuter traffic).

We didn't plan on visiting this part of town but I am glad we did. There was a Christmas market taking place when we can here in November. It is definitely a more modern part of town.
