Hugged by golden sandy beaches and within sight of majestic Arthur’s Seat, Joppa has long been one of the most desirable suburbs in the capital. Situated just over three miles northeast of the city centre, between trendy Portobello and popular Musselburgh, Joppa offers all the charm of a Victorian seaside town with all the advantages of city living. Its local amenities are supplemented by Portobello High Street (a bustling thoroughfare lined with high-street shops and independent retailers) and by several major supermarkets in neighbouring Musselburgh. For more extensive shopping facilities, Fort Kinnaird is just a short drive away and is home to more than fifty outlets, eateries, and a multi-screen cinema. Owing to its coastal setting, Joppa promises an active outdoor lifestyle to suit every taste: from relaxed strolls along the beach and rounds of golf in picturesque East Lothian, to exhilarating water sports or hikes up Arthur’s Seat. Just along the waterfront is Portobello Swim Centre, which boasts first-class indoor swimming facilities, as well as beautifully restored Turkish baths. Joppa is within the catchment area for fantastic state schools and is also convenient for Loretto School in Musselburgh. The town enjoys excellent public transport links into the city centre, including train services from Brunstane station and comprehensive day/night bus routes, as well as ideal proximity to Edinburgh City Bypass and the A1.
