All reviews great shopping high street shops scott monument christmas market rose street old town lots of shops beautiful street waverley station national gallery edinburgh castle tourist shops royal mile jenners primark shoppers fraser
The person who reviewed Princes street as boring shopping was obviously a man. LOL Princes street is fantastic for women. There are many high-end clothing, fragrances, and department stores for a fun time, Jenners Department store was my favorite
Many historical buildings have been demolished and those that remain are crushed by ugly commercial buildings. Large numbers of dull international chain stores prevail. Walk in the Princesses gardens and turn your back on this.
Very busy street with many shops and souvenir shops.A pleasant walk to the gardens is the main highlight.Souvenir shops mostly cheaper in grassmarket and end of the high street.Tho many shops seem to have the same tourist things.Good for getting around with the bus services.

Spent a couple of hours here enjoying my last day in Scotland. Lovely places and shops to make your shopping before leaving Scotland. After, take some coffee from one of the kiosks nearby enjoying the views
The Princess street in Edinburgh is truly a shopping extravaganza. Name the brands and you have it there. Nice place for the window shopper as well. Quite a few eateries and pubs around as well when you in the mood for some food or beers....More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

Hallo Tomtisan, sicherlich findet man an der Princes Street viel Geschäfte, die Weltweit , bzw. in vielen Europäischen Ländern kennt. Dennoch findet man hier auch Geschäfte, die viele Schottische Produkte verkaufen. Bei so manchen Geschäften bekommt man auch eine recht gute Beratung.
