Shopping in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is not only about history, culture and the arts, it's also home to a variety of shops and malls.
The Royal Mile is a fantastic shopping spot for tourists looking to buy upmarket goods such as Scottish made knitwear, antiques and tartan products. It is also ideal for those looking for souvenirs from their trip and many a store sells our famous home made shortbread.
Edinburgh also benefits from a range of high street shops situated on the famous Princes Street, and the nearby George Street boasts a range of chic clothing boutiques. Those looking for intimate boutique-style shopping and the finest quality clothing might also like to visit William Street and Thistle Street.
Harvey Nichols opened its doors in 2002 and from its fourth floor bar, amply named the Forth Bar because of its stunning views of the River Forth, you can also take in the city sights and clearly see Edinburgh Castle. Nearby Multrees Walk houses big brands and stores like Armani, Louis Vuitton and Mulberry stores.
Edinburgh also benefits from a range of central shopping centres including The St James Shopping Centre and Ocean Terminal, situated next to Her Majesty's Britannia ship which can be seen whilst enjoying refreshments in the various bars and bistros in the Ocean Terminal itself.
