Victoria Street in Edinburgh is definitely our favourite street in town!
It is so picturesque with its beautiful buildings and the stores and restaurants are all brilliant. This really is in the heart of Edinburgh as it is just off the Royal Mile and leads below Edinburgh Castle. The greatest place in town for drinks, art and vintage finds – you had better save your pennies if you are coming as it is hard to leave behind all these treasures!
