Located on the south side of the capital, approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, suiting every stage of life, and is popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan coffee shops, pubs, bars, and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This is heightened further during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen's Hall and Summerhall multi-arts complex. Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. Newington is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
