The Newington area of Edinburgh argueably stretches from the South Bridge up to Cameron Toll ( North to South ) and from Potterrow to the Dalkeith Road (east to west). Other extremities are added and subtracted depending on the fashion of the day.
Newington started life as a suburb of Edinburgh to house the burgeoning 'nouveaux riche' of the time. There are lots of Georgian townhouses ( from early 1800's) , many with up to 12 rooms, set in clusters of 4, that were home to the lawyers, bankers and merchants of the day. The area became so popular that in 1884 a railway station was opened which served the public very well until it was closed in 1964, when most suburban lines in the U.K were closed in a rush to fill up our roads.
The main throughfare is the A701 which changes to the A7 just around the Preston St./ South Clerk St intersection. This wasnt a deliberate ploy to confuse visitors but it does succeed in this quite well.
Newington is a great spot to use as a base for visiting Edinburgh in particular and Scotland in general. Visitors who are interested in walking can take to some of the lovely quiet streets and will be delighted at the range of trees and architure that can be found in Newingtons side streets. The Blacket conservation area is a prime example of how Newington's wealthy business class established some of the nicest houses in Edinburgh.
The bus routes in Newington provide quick and easy access to The Royal Mile, the Pentland hills, Portobello ( Edinburgh's seaside ) and even Roslin Chapel.
If you would like Newington as a base to stay for a visit to Edinburgh you will find many lovely places to stay as well as some great restuarants and pubs.
