Haymarket is located on the west side of Edinburgh, Scotland and is best known as the location of one of Edinburgh’s central railway stations. Haymarket is home to an array of lively pubs, restaurants and cafes; however, just a short distance away this bustling neighbourhood becomes a tranquil, green haven lined with terraced Victorian houses and public gardens. Although Haymarket is dappled with historic buildings, it has a very contemporary, youthful atmosphere, for the thriving West End is a favourite among artists seeking inspiring cultural experiences, as well as trendy shoppers looking for eclectic finds in swanky boutiques.
- Enjoy one of the many rugby tournaments hosted at Murrayfield Stadium, home to the Scottish Rugby Union, as well as thousands of rowdy rugby fans.
