One of Edinburgh's most desirable suburbs, bordered by the New Town and Comely Bank, Stockbridge has plenty to offer the visitor.  
 

Soak up the village vibe as you wander amongst the bountiful array of speciality shops, independent cafes and restaurants which Stockbridge has to offer. The area is also well known for its charity shops, some of which are the highest grossing in the U.K. And every Sunday a farmer's market is held in Jubilee Gardens.
 

For those with an interest in architecture, Stockbridge is home to historical churches such as St. Stephen's and St. Cuthberts as well as the much-coveted Stockbridge Colonies built for the Artisan class between 1861 and 1911.
 

Nature lovers can take a stroll to Stockbridge's Inverleith Park, visit the Royal Botanic Gardens or wander along the Water of Leith walkway which runs from Leith to Balerno.
 

Glenogle Swim Centre is a traditional Victorian baths between Stockbridge and neighbouring Canonmills. The centre has a pool, gym, fitness studio, steam room and sauna but also maintains many of its original and charming features.
 

A short ten-minute walk from Stockbridge will take you to the picturesque World Heritage Site of Dean Village, an historical milling hub, now a much sought after residential enclave.
 

Frequent buses run between Stockbridge and the city centre. The West End is a ten minute walk away.
