Welcome to the Greater Grassmarket


"Must-see in Edinburgh" 

TripAdvisor 2013

Steeped in some of Edinburgh’s greatest history, Greater Grassmarket is only a minutes' walk from the popular Royal Mile and visitor favourite, the National Museum of Scotland. 

Stroll along the old George IV Bridge, where you’ll meet the famous Greyfriars Bobby, before walking through some of Edinburgh’s oldest and most photographed streets including Candlemaker Row, Victoria Street, West Port and our famous view of the great Edinburgh Castle.

A vibrant and popular meeting place for visitors and locals alike, you can soak up the medieval atmosphere of the Greater Grassmarket with its splendid views of the nearby castle.  

Experience Edinburgh’s creative side and enjoy our unique specialist shopping delivered by dedicated craftsmen, artisans and experts. With over 90% independent shops, we are Edinburgh's independent shopping destination.

Eat, drink and be entertained with a range of traditional Scottish food and drink sourced from local producers as well as experience year-round live entertainment and events
