Princes Street Gardens: A Drama in Time
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Linking Old and New Towns, Princes Street Gardens are truly amazing in their unique geology, disputed history, diverse planting and the myriad ways that ordinary folk have used and abused them. Soon it will see big design changes: a design dubbed The Hobbit House has won a competition to create a new outdoor concert arena to replace the Ross Bandstand, along with improved access to the Gardens and Castle Rock. Walking tour lasts one hour 45 minutes, approximately one mile of garden tracks; unavoidable steps. Finishes near the west end of Princes Street.
