Edinburgh Shopping Breaks
Shopping In and Around Edinburgh
From the familiar names on Princes Street to boutique shopping on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh is the place to shop!
On the famous Princes Street – make sure you include department stores like Jenners and House of Fraser on your shopping list along with the usual High Street familiar faces all wrapped up in traditional Edinburgh architecture. Take a break from your shopping on Princes Street to take a stroll through the picturesque Princes Gardens overlooked by the impressive sight of Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town.
George Street is one of the premier shopping streets in Britain. From Harvey Nichols in St. Andrew Square through designers shops such as Cruise, Phase Eight and Karen Millen, to Jewellers such as Hamilton & Inches and Lime Blue and Hardware stores George Street has everything you could need from a light bulb to a designer kitchen! When your shopping day is done relax and unwind on George Street with it’s stunning aray of Bars and Restaurants located on street level as well as up on the roof tops!
If Shopping Centres be more up your street (or more likely – sheltering from the good old Scottish weather!) then Edinburgh has much to offer here. From the town centre malls such as the St James Centre to the out of town retailers like the Gyle Centre and Ocean Terminal there is as much variety here as on the streets themselves. All shopping centres located slightly further out of town are all easily accesible by bus from the hotel and from the city centre.
The Dunstane Hotel offers excellent Edinburgh shopping breaks with little extras you won’t want to miss!
