Tollcross is a neighbourhood in Edinburgh that surrounds a major roadway junction of the same name. The area is bustling with students, commuters, and tourists alike, lending to the colourful mix of fun things to see and do. Whether admiring the beautiful architecture dotting the streets of Tollcross or playing a round of golf at Bruntsfield Links Short Hole Golf Course, there is something for everyone. A stop in Tollcross is a must for any trip to Edinburgh, even if you just enjoy a meal at one of the fabulous restaurants, like Indaba.

  • Enjoy a show at the Cameo Cinema, one of the oldest and most charming theatres in Edinburgh, situated in the centre of Tollcross.
  • Get pampered in luxury with a well-deserved massage and beauty treatments at One Spa, followed by a lovely dinner at Cafe Class.
  • Visit the impressive and instantly recognisable Edinburgh Castle for magnificent views of Tollcross and beyond, after which enjoy some shopping at the Waverly Shopping Centre.

Tollcross is easily reached from all of Edinburgh. Lothian Buses operates numerous routes in and around Tollcross. The lines serving the area most directly are 10, 11, 15, 16, 23, 24, 27, and 45. Travelling by bus is very inexpensive in Edinburgh. Taxis are abundant, and a very convenient way, to get about town, especially for visitors who don't wish to manoeuvre in the sometimes congested traffic. For those who don't mind braving the roadways, hired cars are definitely an option. Many tourists find that once in Tollcross, it is quite enjoyable to explore on foot.

What travelers to Tollcross are saying

We came to Edinburgh to see cats the musical at Edinburgh playhouses. We made our own meal in the apartment which was very convenient although there are plenty of restaurants close by.
