Welcome to the West Port

In the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town,
in the shadow of the castle
where bodysnatchers Burke and Hare once roamed,
you will find a string of independent businesses.

Discover collectable books, vintage clothes and jewellery,

beautiful flowers and anime-inspired gifts freshly imported from Japan.

Places to have your cake and eat it, home-made fast food and fine dining.

you can get a tattoo or acupuncture, have a haircut or a massage,

or try a malt of the moment in a traditional Scottish pub.

And if you want to stay, comfortable apartments and hotels.

The West Port leads to the city's top theatre and cinema area,

and also to the Union Canal walkway, one of Edinburgh's secret treasures.
