The Polwarth neighbourhood of Edinburgh, Scotland, is primarily made up of homes. It is bounded to the east and south by Bruntsfield and Merchiston, to the north by Gorgie and Dalry, to the north and east by Fountainbridge, and to the west by Craiglockhart.

From Edinburgh to Falkirk, the Union Canal passes through Polwarth.

Even though it is technically part of Merchiston Community Council, Harrison Park, located on the canal’s northern bank, is more commonly associated with the neighbouring Polwarth neighbourhood. North of the park’s tenements, along what was once the main line of the defunct Caledonian Railway to the city’s former Princes Street station, is a pedestrian walkway. A station called Merchiston originally stood on this track close to the park.

Shops, cafes, and restaurants of all stripes line the picturesque streets leading from Charlotte Square to Haymarket Station. Everything from state-of-the-art beauty salons to hip restaurants serving craft cocktails to chic clothing stores. The stores, cafés, and restaurants along their charming cobbled streets are where you’ll find genuine local flavour. Find us, since we are Edinburgh’s best-kept secret.

The Edinburgh neighbourhoods of Palworth, New Town, and Old Town are all part of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage site. Contemporary buildings compete for attention with Victorian and Georgian terraces. The fact that citizens and government officials alike are highly regarded in Edinburgh tells a lot about the city.

Today, the Palworth is renowned for its unique shops, hip bars, and one-of-a-kind eateries, without being so stuffy as to exclude the chains. The neighbourhood is also a cultural epicentre. Within its limits are the Usher Hall, the Royal Lyceum, the Traverse Theatre, and the Filmhouse.

The city’s financial area, known as The Exchange, is also located in Palworth. Just a short walk from the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, you’ll find prestigious institutions including Bank of Scotland and Standard Life. More modest office buildings with views of quiet garden squares are home to foreign consulates and professional services like accounting, law, and surveying.

In 1813, the region was planned by prolific and renowned architect James Gillespie Graham. Roads like William Street and Walker Street are unimaginatively named after their developer, William Walker. The former is known for its well-preserved Georgian commercial facades and is frequently visited by location scouts. Take note of the cast-iron balconies that shoppers used to peer into the storefronts.
