New Town Gardens, The, Princes Street Gardens

Princes Street Gardens lie in the valley between the Old and New Town in Edinburgh, backed by the Castle Rock to the south. Created in the early- to mid-19th century they divide into two areas on either side of a museum and gallery complex, with Edinburgh's main station at one end. The gardens comprise terrace walks, sweeping lawns and borders. In the western part there is a bandstand, floral clock and fountain. Princes Street Gardens are the venue for many events in the city's festive and cultural calendar.
