The area of Leith, situated on the shore of the Firth of Forth, is known for being the official port of Edinburgh since 1329, and was often visited by travelling royalty, from Mary Queen of Scots to King George IV. Today, the area boasts an impressive collection of delis, modern and chic bars, and a vast array of restaurants, influenced not only by top traditional Scottish cuisine but also by the exciting mix of cultures that the area has attracted over the years.

If you’re visiting this charming area of Edinburgh in June, you may be lucky enough to get involved in the famous Leith Festival. The festival originated as a Gala and Pageant over 100 years ago, and was held to raise money treatment in the local Hospital before the National Health Service was founded. Today it involves an exciting week of art, singing, dance, theatre, music, exhibitions and even walking tours of the area, providing a fun and varied day out for everyone.

Visitors can also enjoy a leisurely mile long walk, the famous ‘Leith Walk’, through the beautiful town, to end up at the east end of Princess Street, one of the most iconic streets in Edinburgh city centre. The street provides a shopping haven, and has earned its name as the largest shopping street in Edinburgh – there’s almost nothing you can’t buy here! If shopping isn’t your thing, you’ll be awestruck by the beautiful Princess Street Gardens located on both the east and the west of Princess Street. These Gardens are the most famous public park in Edinburgh, and frequently host concerts and other events, such as the Festival Fireworks Concert during Hogmanay celebrations. In the winter, the park is transformed into a ‘Winter Wonderland’, with amusement rides, an ice rink and a quaint and traditional Christmas Market, selling trinkets from all over the world.
