Stockbridge is an area on the north end of Edinburgh, originally named for a kind of timber bridge that went over the river. Tourists to Edinburgh will enjoy this historical and quaint area while shopping at the local market, touring the many churches as old as Scotland itself. Stockbridge is also highlighted by its interesting combo of old and new establishments, providing a great environment to travel by foot or take a guided tour. Travellers to Edinburgh enjoy a nice day of shopping and eating should definitely visit Stockbridge on their visit.
- See the Stockbridge Market in Edinburgh, whose original archway still stands, casting a shadow on the bustling street vendors below.
- Visit St. Stephen's Church, a nineteenth century building that features the longest clock pendulum in all of Europe, which was built to accommodate the building’s extraordinarily long, narrow structure.
- Stop by the colonies, which were originally built as low-income housing in the Edinburgh area, but have since become highly sought after because of their proximity to the Royal Botanic Gardens and downtown.
Reaching Stockbridge is not difficult, as the area is close to downtown Edinburgh, and easily accessed through any Lothian Bus around the city. Buses run regularly to the area and there are dozens of sites to see, so you can definitely make the trip worth your while. It is also possible to take a taxi to Stockbridge, which will not be overly expensive if coming from the downtown area. If you wish to drive, plan ahead and to ensure that you find a location with parking since the narrow roads limit the amount of street parking available.
