Stockbridge is an affluent suburb of the city of Edinburgh situated to the north of the city centre. Once a sleepy village at the outskirts of the city, its cobbled streets, classical architecture and upscale shops, bars and restaurants make it popular with both residents and visitors.
Things to do
Stockbridge benefits from beautiful architecture and numerous delightful parks and open spaces. A walk along the Water of Leith takes you past St Bernard’s Well and Dean Village or you could enjoy a picnic in Inverleith Park or The Royal Botanic Gardens. The grounds of the National Gallery of Modern Art are beautifully maintained and it houses an impressive collection of artworks.
Stockbridge has some delightful cafes and bistros, as well as more formal restaurants. For a fine dining experience head to the Stockbridge Restaurant or Purslane. For a more casual (and less expensive meal) Hamilton’s Bar and Kitchen is a great favourite. You can also sample delicious Italian, Spanish and Thai cuisine here.
