PRINCES STREET [04:45]
The Edinburgh Video Guide presents Princes Street, Edinburgh's main shopping thoroughfare and the definitive divide between the capital's Old and New Towns. Princes Street features many well known high street stores and is approximately one mile long, from the city's west to the east end. Princes Street Gardens run alongside the famous shopping stretch - A beautiful centrepiece for Scotland's festival city. The gardens were originally the Nor Loch, a marshy, boggy lake, which was ultimately drained to create the stunning public space that exists today. The gardens are split into four by the railway tracks of Edinburgh's Waverley Station, and feature the rocket-like Scott Monument, the Ross Bandstand and Fountain, and the entrance to the National Galleries of Scotland.
