A little more about the New Town:
In mid-1700s Edinburgh was a medieval jumble. To address this in 1766 the City of Edinburgh held a competition to develop 100 acres of city-owned land to the North of the Nor' Loch (now Princes Street Gardens) as a residential suburb to be called the New Town.
James Craig, the 21-year-old son of a merchant, won the competition with his plan for a grid system of streets bounded by formal squares. Building commenced on the first phase of the New Town in 1767 and Northumberland Street forms part of the second phase, built in 1807.
Houses in Edinburgh’s New Town were built as a series of individual plots, sold at £2,000, for the wealthy middle class to build their own homes. This resulted in a diversity of buildings within the same street, each with its own individual character but conforming to Craig’s master plan.
The street names in the New Town draw on ‘Britishness’. Streets were named after Royalty, Empire, English counties, national heroes and reaffirmed Edinburgh’s commitment to the Union. Northumberland Street, and neighbouring Cumberland Street, reflects this link with England. The New Town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995.

We booked the apartment very last minute but on our arrival everything was ready and perfect. The apartment was beautiful with everything you could need and with a great location. Just a few minutes walk from George street and princes street. The owner of the property was also very helpful offering us restaurant and theater recommendations. Would definately recommend and stay again!
