Lying to the south of the City Centre in Edinburgh's Old Town, Pleasance borders St Leonards and Newington, It is a largely residential area although there are also a number of Edinburgh University buildings nearby. The name, derived from the Scots word plesance meaning a park or garden, first appeared in 1507 as the name of a nearby house and was later transferred to the suburb which lay outside the old town wall. Pleasance houses include traditional tenement properties and a number of modern apartment complexes.

The area offers a wide range of local shops and restaurants. A regular bus service operates to the City Centre with its wide choice of leading retail establishments and there is easy access to Edinburgh City Bypass and major motorway networks.

The location is within walking distance of many places of interest including The Royal Mile, Dynamic Earth, The Scottish Parliament and the Palace of Holyrood. For recreation there is the Royal Commonwealth Pool and the open spaces of Holyrood Park and Salisbury Crags.
