Area:
Located on the south side of the capital and approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, to suit every stage of life, and is equally popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan cafes and coffee shops, pubs, bars and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This changes again during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The rest of the year, however, Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen's Hall and Summerhall multi-arts complex. Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. For sport and fitness enthusiasts, The Royal Commonwealth Pool boasts a first-class gym, three fitness studios and three pools, including Edinburgh's only 50m pool. The wide-open spaces of Holyrood Park, Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags are also just a short walk away. The property falls within the catchment area for highly-regarded Sciennes Primary School and James Gillespie's High School, and is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
