An interesting walk. Less a bridge, more a road, although it is a bridge, quite a few nice restaurants and shops.

Doesn't take a lot of time to see, so just pass there and enjoy the bridge itself and that little view.

The bridge itself is an impressive structure and a great place to take paronamic photos of the city both across to the castle and down to the sea.

George IV Bridge is usually a hive of activity and will especially appeal to Tourists due to the many Scottish Gift Shops, Cafes, Bars and Restaurants. This area is usually always lively and has a good atmosphere.
