Photos of Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh

About the Gardens on Princes Street

Princes Street and its gardens represent the very heart of Edinburgh. The street is the City's main shopping area while the gardens offer people a respite from the hustle and bustle of the shops. Main landmarks and attractions on Princes Street include the Balmoral Hotel, Scott Monument (with gorgeous panoramas of the gardens, Old Town and the Castle) and the Floral Clock.

The best views of Princes Street are from the very top of the Scott Monument, from Calton Hill, particularly at dusk, and looking back along Princes Street from the West End. Princes Street during events such as the Festival Cavalcade or Hogmanay can also make for great yet more unusual photos.
