The main approach from the West to the Old Town, the Grassmarket is still very well conserved with many historic buildings, and an open, cobbled market square, which allows pubs and restaurants to spill out onto the pavement. There are also a number of small retailers in the area.

Some of Edinburgh's tallest buildings are in the Grassmarket, with some having eight or nine stories, each story of around 9 or 10 feet.

The area's historic role as a marketplace continues to some extent with public fairs, market stalls, craft fairs, and festival events, such as at Hogmanay and the Edinburgh Jazz Festival mardi gras in July.

The Grassmarket was also the location for public executions. James Andrews was the last person hanged here on 4 February 1784, for a robbery in Hope Park, but Grassmarket bars still trade on the area's notoriety, the most obvious being the Last Drop.

The Grassmarket's close proximity to the entrance of the old fortified city and the fact that it is situated in a low-lying valley, that would have been accessible by livestock and carts, meant that there was probably a market here as early as the 1300s.

Nestled in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, the Grassmarket area is one of the most vibrant, picturesque and convivial areas of the city.

A paradise of independent merchants, designers and artisans, the Grassmarket Edinburgh is simply bursting with some of the best shopping Edinburgh has to offer.

Far more than simply a retail haven, the area is well known for being home to some of the best restaurants in Edinburgh as well as some of the most vibrant and eclectic bars in Edinburgh. In fact the Grassmarket pubs, many with a history dating back to the notorious days of Burke and Hare, are known throughout the world for their exciting, dark Edinburgh history mixed with some of the best traditional food, ales and music in the city!

The area's dramatic and intriguing history, well preserved cobbled streets, medieval architecture and inspiring views of Edinburgh Castle help to create an atmosphere unparalleled in Edinburgh, Scotland or indeed Europe.

With so much to see and do it's easy to see why a visit to Edinburgh wouldn't be complete without shopping, dining, exploring in Edinburgh's beautiful Grassmarket.
