Lying approximately two miles northeast of Edinburgh, and nestled between Trinity and Leith, is the desirable district of Newhaven. Situated on the Firth of Forth, this historic district was once a thriving fishing village and harbour and is now earmarked as one of the city’s conservation areas. Newhaven has developed greatly in recent years and offers residents an excellent range of local amenities, including a 24-hour ASDA superstore and Ocean Terminal, which is home to high-street stores and restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and a 24-hour gym. Neighbouring Leith also offers a wide range of shops, bars, and restaurants.
For sports and fitness enthusiasts, Newhaven certainly delivers, with extensive facilities at the David Lloyd Gym and Club and a fantastic indoor climbing centre at Alien Rock. For a more relaxing option, Newhaven’s waterfront forms part of the Edinburgh promenade, which extends along Granton towards Cramond Beach. Schooling options with Newhaven’s catchment area include Victoria Primary School and the Trinity Academy. The area’s already excellent public transport links will be further enhanced with the forthcoming extension of the tramline, which will terminate in Newhaven and provide direct links to the airport via the city centre. For those wishing to travel further afield, Newhaven’s northerly position enables easy access to the Queensferry Crossing and Edinburgh City Bypass, as well as Edinburgh Airport and the motorway network.
