There were a few things that were really cool like bagpipe stree performers but otherwise it is very general tourist shopping and can be found anywhere

“Royal Mile Fringe Festival”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The shops and pubs were very friendly and the fringe has many people from around the world. The Royal Mile was full of performers, mimes, comedians, jugglers and fun people. The area was all fenced off so easy to get to the events. Great spot.

“Shopping and people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Lots of shopping and people watching. Some of the pubs would not let us in with a toddler. I am not sure if that is a general rule or because of a liquor license. A lot of the stores sell the same things so don't be in a rush to buy something, shop around and get your VAT back at the airport.

“August festival in royal mile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

there are no words that can describe the atmosphere, the colours, the people, the vitality, the emotions, the images from a simple walk in the royal mile during the August festival in Edimbourgh.
