Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village

even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

Hi We were in the front row of the circle but ffrom what i can remember there are very few pillars so anywhere in the central stalls should be good.
