New Town

Sophisticated student life.





Eat & Drink

Known for:

New Town is one of the most expensive areas in Edinburgh. Despite the price tag, there’s still quite a large student population in New Town and affordable accommodation options. While the walk to campus may be longer than if were living in Marchmont, here you’ll be surrounded by beautiful architecture with plenty of places to shop, eat, and drink.
