About the neighborhood
The famous Grassmarket is right in the heart of Old Town and is one of the jewels of Edinburgh, unmissable on any trip, full of character and history. It's just a few minutes walk from all the tourist attractions. It features ancient buildings and is steeped in history. It has a wealth of wonderful international eateries, a lovely creperie and now famous vintage milk bar for ice creams as well as fabulous juice bars and some legendary traditional Scottish and Irish pubs.

At the top of the Grassmarket is the beautiful, charming and very photogenic winding, cobbled Victoria Street with every shop an upmarket or quirky independent-there are boutiques, antiques, speciality cheese and whisky shops, book shops, Harris Tweed shops and more fabulous restaurants and bars.

Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Edinburgh Airport: 8.1 mi
Railway: Edinburgh Waverley : 0.9 mi
The apartment is easily found. If you are arriving from the airport there is an excellent new tram system that takes you (in 30 minutes) straight from the airport to the West End of Princes Street (£5 fare) from where it is an 8 minute walk to the apartment, or you could of course hail a cab. A taxi from the airport takes around 25 minutes. If you're arriving by train to Waverley Station it is then a 5 minute taxi ride, or 15 minute walk to the apartment. Once here you are within walking distance of everywhere but if needed there is a bus that stops in the Grassmarket or there are plenty of taxis. The tour buses also stop off in the Grassmarket. If you are staying a little longer there are various car rentals so you can explore.
