About Edinburgh Area Guide > Marchmont

A desirable residential area twenty minutes walk, or a short bus ride, from Edinburgh city centre.


Marchmont is a desirable residential area twenty minutes walk, or a short bus ride, from Edinburgh city centre.  
 

Marchmont is bordered by Brunstfield and nearby Morningside. Golf fans can visit Bruntsfield Links short hole course and play a round for free. A short walk from the Links will bring you to the famous Cameo cinema, which shows a variety of independent films and The King's Theatre, a popular venue for contemporary and historical theatre.
 

Sports enthusiasts will also enjoy the Warrender Swim Centre - a traditional Victorian baths in Bruntsfield. The centre has a modern pool, gym and sauna but also maintains many of its original and charming 19th century features.
 

The Meadows, a large public park, straddles Bruntsfield and neighbouring Marchmont and is a popular spot in summer for barbeques and picnics as well as a resting spot for tired festival-goers. The Meadows is also home to a children's play park, municipal tennis courts, croquet, picnic tables and designated barbeque areas.
 

A stroll across The Meadows and through the grounds of nearby Edinburgh University, will take you to the Old Town and famous attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriars Bobby and the National Museum of Scotland.
 

But if you'd rather spend some time close to home, Marchmont and its neighbour Bruntsfield, are perfect for whiling away the hours amongst the eclectic range of boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants.
