Edinburgh is a great place for shopping, with a variety of options to suit all tastes and budgets. Here are some popular shopping destinations in Edinburgh.

George Street

Just moments away from Eleven Stafford Street, George Street is the central thoroughfare of the first New Town of Edinburgh. With beautiful architecture and statues, along its route, George Street is renowned for its shopping and restaurants. The White Company, Anthropologie, Jo Malone and Jack Wills all have made their home here, and if you need a rest whilst shopping this half mile long street, there are many places for a break such as The Dome

Multrees Walk

If you like Luxury brands, head straight for Multrees Walk, where you’ll find such retailers as Louis Vuitton, Strathberry, Burberry and Michael Kors, with Harvey Nicols at the St Andrew Square side of the Walk, and the new St James Quarter at the other (see below).

St James Quarter

Opened in 2022, the St James Quarter boasts a range of shops and restaurants and bars, including The Lego Shop, Pull & Bear, Mango and Stradivarius. If you are in the mood for a bite to eat you can choose from Bonnie & Wild, Itsu, Salerno Pizza and more. If you fancy a cocktail, we can recommend the Alchemist for some fantastic drinks – but make sure to book well in advance!


Eleven Stafford Street is just a short walk from Edinburgh’s Haymarket Station where there are regular (often every 15minutes) trains to Glasgow. Visit such shopping areas as Sauchiehall Street, The Italian Centre, St Enoch Centre, The Buchanan Galleries and Princes Square
