The Grassmarket area is certainly a retail haven with its many independent boutique shops, designers and artisans as well as some of the best cafes, restaurants and pubs that Edinburgh has to offer, in fact some of the Grassmarket pubs date all the way back to the notorious days of Burke and Hare and are known throughout the world for their character history and charm.Getting around
Throughout the year, the Grassmarket is host to many spectacular outdoor events and festivals offering arts markets with arty crafty folk selling their wares, live music and dance, and so much more.
With the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle only a stones’ throw away, the Grassmarket area is certainly the perfect place to stay if you planning to explore this charming, historic and picturesque Scottish capital.
By Train - Exit the station at Waverley Bridge (the other exit from the train station is onto Princes Street). Now, facing the castle, go left on Waverley Bridge and walk to the end where there is a small mini-roundabout. Turn right here onto Market Street and walk up the hill to the end and turn left on the Mound. Follow this road round and up to the traffic lights. Continue through the lights onto George IV Bridge (it does not look like a bridge) and then turn right at Victoria Street. Walk down to the bottom of this street and you have reached your destination.
From the Airport take the Airport Bus (no 100) or Tram to Waverley Train Station (we are a 5-10 minute walk from Waverley Train Station). Facing the castle, go left on Waverley Bridge and walk to the end where there is a small mini-roundabout. Turn right here onto Market Street and walk up the hill to the end and turn left on the Mound. Follow this road round and up to the traffic lights. Continue through the lights onto George IV Bridge (it does not look like a bridge) and then turn right at Victoria Street. Walk down to the bottom of this street and you have reached your destination.
If you are driving, car parking in Edinburgh can be challenging. I tend to recommend the car park behind the Radisson Blu Hotel as it is quite close and good value. For other options, please check out the website ParkoPedia.
