The main shopping street in Scotland’s capital, and one of the most spectacular in the country. Princes Street offers a mile of shops overlooked by the Royal Mile and the impressive Edinburgh Castle.
Stores along Princes Street include BHS, Scotland’s largest Boots, H&M, HMV, Debenhams, Marks & Spencer and Topshop. On the east end you’ll find Jenners Department store, an Edinburgh landmark in its own right, now part of the House of Fraser group.
