Nestling between the majestic Salisbury Crags and monument strewn Calton Hill, this 7.5 acre site in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre is going through a dramatic metamorphosis. Located in the Old Town, on the Royal Mile, rich history combines seamlessly with cutting edge contemporary architecture to create “New Waverley” an exciting and vibrant new destination.
Accessibility was to the fore when the New Waverley master plan was conceived. Pedestrian access is provided from the Royal Mile,Cranston Street,East Market Street,New Street,Old Tolbooth Wynd and Calton Road, with numerous footpaths leading to New Waverley Square,the beating heart of the development. People are welcome to stroll through, rendezvous with friends or simply relax and take in the views, many of which are spectacular.
