Renowned as Edinburgh's cultural and international hub, located at the old crossroads where the city tolls were once paid, the area of Tollcross boasts a vibrant atmosphere. Its fantastic situation means residents are never more than a few minutes' walk from city attractions: Princes and George Street for shopping; Lothian Road for live music, film and theatre; or exploring the narrow closes and winding streets of the historic Old Town. The immediate area offers a wealth of independent shops, coffee houses and delis, and is known for some of Edinburgh's most diverse restaurants offering international cuisine. There's also a buzzing social scene, with no shortage of venues for every taste: from traditional pubs and ale rooms to trendy clubs and cocktail bars.
Situated at heart of the capital, Tollcross also provides easy access to some of Edinburgh's most beloved public green spaces, including The Meadows. Popular with city professionals, Tollcross lies between Haymarket and Waverly stations, and the new tramline passes through the West End along Shandwick Place, allowing quick and easy travel in the city, all the way to Edinburgh International Airport. The area benefits from outstanding schooling in both the state and private sector and is within the catchment area for Tollcross Primary School and James Gillespie's High School
