Stockbridge Walking Tour (Self Guided), Edinburgh

Dive into a bohemian village in the northeast part of the New Town. This is Stockbridge, home to many artists, writers, actors, musicians and poets. As you may expect, the vibe is free and easy and the locals are very friendly. Such is the warmth of the community here that it was voted ‘Great Neighborhood of the Year’ by the Academy of Urbanism.

Although it is only a ten to fifteen-minute walk from the city center, Stockbridge feels a world away with its quaint village charm. There is much to see and do here, including shopping and dining in some fabulous eateries. For those who love a bit of retail therapy, Stockbridge was made for you. There are lots of independent retailers selling clothes, fashions, jewelry and gourmet goodies. Situated among them is a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafés offering hearty, traditional and international cuisines.

If you are in the area on a Sunday, shop in a local favorite, the weekly Sunday Stockbridge Market where the stalls are bursting with fresh produce and the creations of artisan bakers. A visit to Stockbridge wouldn't be complete without looking up and admiring the magnificent tower of St Stephen's Church. Its clock pendulum is said to be the longest in Europe.
