A hidden gem in Edinburgh's north, Trinity is a well-heeled suburb a short bus ride from the city centre.


A hidden gem in Edinburgh's north, Trinity is a well-heeled suburb a short bus ride from the city centre.  
 

Many of the buildings in Trinity were once "country retreats" for those who lived in the New Town. Residents of this quiet area enjoy access to Victoria Park with its free tennis and basketball courts, children's play area and ample green space for relaxing, and Starbank Park with its quant rose garden.
 

Trinity is bordered by the historic fishing village of Newhaven. Wander along the cobbled streets to the harbour with its pretty fishing boats - a drawcard for photo opportunities. Around the breakwater also provides a pleasant and picturesque place to take a walk.
 

In both Trinity and Newhaven there are several pubs and restaurants serving delicious seafood dishes, some with views overlooking the water. You can also take a five minute taxi ride to Leith's Shore area where more dining options await.
 

A fifteen minute walk from Trinity will take you to Ocean Terminal shopping centre, alongside which the Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed.
 

There is easy access from Trinity to Edinburgh's cycle path network (once railways lines). This route is also suitable for pedestrians and dog walkers.
 

Frequent buses run between Trinity and Edinburgh city centre. The journey takes around twenty minutes.
