Great selection of art prints and other crafts. A wide variety of art styles and content at affordable prices. If you want to take home some art from your trip to Edinburgh, make sure to stop by Red Door Gallery.

Great place to get lost in for an hour or so. Lots of unique finds from local Scottish artists. I found a very lovely wool necklace!

We found this shop while wandering around Edinburgh and decided to peek in "for a second." Well, we quickly discovered this shop is full of cute and fun items and artworks, and ended up spending more like half an hour there. There is so much to look at, and it's all great! If you have any interest in art prints, or creative greeting cards, or other artsy things, you should take a look at this shop. We left with a set of three art prints and a few greeting cards.

Thanks for the glowing review! Our collection is designed to make you smile, and nothing makes us happier than the fairly constant sound of giggling from our Greetings Card section at the back of the shop! It is very cheering to hear you found the sense of humour and joy in our collection. Everything we carry is carefully selected for its unique sense of design, affordability and production process. I hope your purchases bring you joy for years to come!

Art and jewelry from local-ish independent artists, which is exactly what I want (I detest touristy mementos). A wide variety of art and jewelry, too, so you're sure to find something interesting. Helpful folks. My favorite store in Edinburgh!
Only drawback is the small size - lots of folks get packed in there in the later afternoon...but it's worth it.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a positive and well considered review! We love welcoming travellers from across the world in to The Red Door Gallery and it’s heart-warming to think our maker’s works create a spot in your holiday memories. Our small, passionate team are always delighted to discuss the works and where they are made as we see ourselves as a stepping stone in our contributor’s career paths. In fact, most of our front of house team contributes their craft to the gallery, but can be a little shy about this :) We do get a little busy at times and would love to have more space, but it’s worth knowing that the busy spells tend to go in phases, so popping next door for 10 minutes and then calling back again can make all the difference. We also have a pretty sharp online shop (trumpet blown!) where you can browse of an evening then just collect from store or ship directly. Thanks so much for supporting us, it makes all the difference to hear your feedback :)

I often enjoy browsing here. Have bought a number of prints (my favourite one was of UK Shipping Areas) and, most recently, a screen print.

Thanks for giving us a full points review :) I know the Shipping Areas of The UK map print you purchased, and love it! It is part of a wider collection of screen printed maps by a local artist that we carry. It's lovely to hear you enjoy browsing the collection, we like to make people feel welcome in the space, and always have music playing to try and create a welcoming atmosphere. Pop in for a browse any time, but be sure to say hello when you are next in!

Was having the usual tourist stroll through the old town, and just came upon this shop, the usual sort of bits and pieces you find in tourist areas in cities worldwide, always worth a look, always a raised eyebrow at what you see, very enjoyable, no only looked, didn't buy, but if you have space in the suitcase, have a look, you may find something nice.

Thanks for giving us a full points review! Glad to hear you enjoyed a wonder through Edinburgh's Old Town, it is a beautiful part of the city and good way to get a feel for how the historic architecture has influenced contemporary life. The shop fronts of Victoria Street and the Grassmarket are quite unusual in that they are still largely run by independent shop keepers, yet are all right in the heart of the city. We are lucky enough to have a beautiful location, nestled under Edinburgh Castle on the wonderful, cobbled Victoria Street. I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed a browse through our collection and know well the pain of suitcase restrictions! Some airlines can be quite strict, some are flexible so it's worth checking before travel... either way it can present a tough dilemma, so we are always happy to discuss packaging and shipping options. Thanks for supporting The Red Door Gallery!
