Edinburgh is a labyrinth of winding cobbled closes and wide gridded streets all full of a miscellaneous collection of shops selling everything you could imagine, and more. Three of the most popular shopping destinations in the city are Princes Street, George Street and Multrees Walk all located within two minutes of each other. No matter what you are looking for; whether it be a Christmas gift for a loved one or an indulgence for yourself, these three locations are sure to satisfy your shopping desires.
Multrees Walk typifies the luxury shopping experience in Edinburgh with the likes of Mulberry, Burberry and Louis Vuitton distinguishing the modern street. The luxury labels are various, ranging from these designer clothing brands to fine art studios with even the automotive industry making an appearance in Tesla’s showroom. Enjoy an extravagant shopping experience before being pampered by the various beauty treatments available in Harvey Nichols.
Diagonally opposite Multrees Walk and across St Andrews Square we find George Street, perhaps the capital’s most renowned shopping area. George Street has it all: popular fashion boutiques; dazzling jewellery collections; celebrated fine dining restaurants; and sophisticated home decor studios. Here, the ardent shopper is certainly spoilt for choice.
Running parallel to its Georgian counterpart is Princes Street, another of Edinburgh’s popular shopping meccas. Like the other two shopping hubs, Princes Street similarly provides a diverse range of retailers. However, perhaps its biggest attraction is its gardens which stretch the length of the street and offer one of the most iconic views of the Castle. Grab an ice cream or a coffee and enjoy a relaxing walk with one of the most beautiful views in the world.
