About the area
City Centre (East) - Hillside, Broughton Street, Leith Walk
Covering the area from the East end of Princes Street down to the foot of Leith Walk, this area has great appeal for festival visitors, with The Playhouse Theatre being the cultural hub. There are many restaurants and bars in the area, local favourites include Vittoria's Italian, Joseph Pearce pub and Kushis Indian restaurant. The city centre, Old Town and Southside are an easy walk (15-30 mins) or the very regular bus service that runs along Leith Walk makes it just a short journey into Princes Street, Old Town or Southside venues. Broughton Street is a popular destination in this part of the City, yet more good restaurants, pubs, an Omni cinema and local amenities (butcher, fishmonger and Tesco Metro close by). There is even (gasp!) 'free' city centre parking on some of the streets off Leith Walk which can make this area even more attractive to car borne visitors.
