About the neighbourhood
The Grassmarket is in the historic centre of Edinburgh and is home to numerous restaurants, cafes, Scottish pubs and boutiques selling antiques, books, cashmere, period clothes and much more. Restaurants in the pedestrianised areas allow for outdoor eating. The area is steeped in history. Notoriously the Grassmarket was the site for public executions, a memory reflected in the naming of the Last Drop pub: the name refers both to drops of drink and to the drop from the gallows. During the summer the place comes alive with street performers, musicians and special events. A quick stroll will take you up to the Royal Mile and the Castle or along to Princes St through its lovely gardens.
