The Shore, Edinburgh
Situated approximately two miles north of Edinburgh city centre, this vibrant suburb was once a thriving port at the heart of the capital's maritime industry. Like much of Edinburgh's northern seaboard, The Shore has undergone significant regeneration to become one of most desirable postcodes in the capital. Characterised by its narrow, cobbled streets and continental-style waterfront, the area exudes a charming, small-town ambience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Shore is renowned for its buzzing arts and social scene, which is fuelled by a fabulous selection of galleries and boutiques, trendy bars and award-winning eateries including no fewer than three Michelin-starred restaurants. For foodies, Leith Market (every Saturday) is the perfect place to pick up fresh local produce, before tucking into some delicious street food! The area is served by an excellent range of local services and amenities, particularly in the bustling shopping area around the Foot of the Walk and Great Junction Street. Ocean Terminal shopping centre offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities including a variety of high-street stores, a selection of family restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and a 24-hour gym. The Shore is within the catchment area for Leith Primary and Leith Academy with the Leith School of Art nearby. The Shore enjoys fantastic public transport links into the city centre and beyond, and also provides swift and easy to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the M8/M9 motorway networks.
