Exploring Stockbridge: Hidden Treasures and Unique Delights

Stockbridge is one of Edinburgh’s most popular neighbourhoods and understandably so. It has a community feel and is packed full of brilliant independent businesses. To visit Stockbridge is to almost forget supermarkets exist, and instead stroll from butcher to cheesemonger, baker to deli, and perhaps catch the farmers’ market on a Sunday too.

It’s not only food, Stockbridge is a haven for independent retailers of all varieties: books, clothing, jewellery, records - and excellent charity shops too. Stockbridge is also home to great bars, restaurants and cafes, and it’s easy to make a day of it. From here walk to the Botanic Gardens, Inverleith Park or the Water of Leith and enjoy exploring this handsome neighbourhood.
