Edinburgh’s Seaside

Just 20 minutes from Princes Street, Portobello is a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Fashionable in the Victorian era, Portobello had its heyday in the 50s and 60s and has now re-invented itself as a cool seaside community that extends a warm welcome to everyone.

Georgian villas and Victorian tenements enjoy Conservation Area status in a town that is proud of its past and confident of its future. A mile of golden sand, beach-side cafes and bars, peaceful parks and a vibrant High Street.

Discover one of Edinburgh's best-kept secrets and find out for yourself why it's a great place to live and a great place to visit.
