All reviews great shopping high street shops scott monument christmas market rose street old town lots of shops waverley station edinburgh castle national gallery royal mile tourist shops jenners primark shoppers fraser tourists
This is a busy street and probably the most active after the Royal Mile. Shops of all kinds from typical tourist gift shops to Skechers and local clothing. It’s a nice walk and directly across the street from the park.
Easily my favorite street in Edinburgh! I loved going up and down the street and probably ended up doing so about 20 times in the short time I spent in Scotland. I admit, my main reason for being on the street were the shops (Topshop,...More
Princess Street is like any other Shopping location, usual shops and usual prices and same merchandise as any where else, but the location and History and the views are breathtaking. Good atmosphere and very busy and a good buzz about the place. The Edinburgh Festival...More
The buildings have some really beautiful architecture, and real stature, a sort of pride in their existence. The street on the other hand is just a thoroughfare, but trying to work out what street level means...you think you know, then you look down between buildings...More
Without doubt the best view of any shopping street anywhere. That being said, the shops are the same as any other city centre, so don’t make your visit to Edinburgh to go shopping in Princes Street. Cross the road from the shops and walk along,...More
Not really an attraction. Most of the stores are chain stores you would find back home. I only came to Princes Street to see the Scott Monument and catch the tram to the airport. It’s not really for tourists like Royal mile. It’s mor for...More
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 Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

Hallo Tomtisan, sicherlich findet man an der Princes Street viel Geschäfte, die Weltweit , bzw. in vielen Europäischen Ländern kennt. Dennoch findet man hier auch Geschäfte, die viele Schottische Produkte verkaufen. Bei so manchen Geschäften bekommt man auch eine recht gute Beratung.
