George Street, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
George Street - City Centre - Main Street
George Street in Edinburgh is the central street in James Craig's plan of the New Town.
It is located to the north of Princes Street and to the south of Queen Street, runs along the high point of a ridge. It connects St Andrew Square with Charlotte Square and takes its name from King George III. The street was first proposed in 1767, and was initially a residential area;by 2013 it had become, according to the Edinburgh Evening News, "the city’s most prestigious shopping district".
Several prominent statues are located along the street, commemorating Thomas Chalmers (1780–1847), William Pitt the Younger (1759–1806), King George IV (1762–1830) and James Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879). Notable buildings on George Street include St Andrew's and St George's West Church, the Assembly Rooms, The Dome and the headquarters of the Church of Scotland.
Stockbridge, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The grounds of the National Gallery of Modern Art are beautifully maintained and it houses an impressive collection of art works.
Broughton, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The Broughton area is to the North East of Edinburgh City Centre, West of Leith Walk and South of Pilrig. Its central location and the fact that it is on the edge of Edinburgh New Town, but without the housing costs of the New Town, has made it a vibrant area with a good number of pubs and restaurants particularly on Broughton Street.
Gayfield police station and Gayfield Square figures frequently in Edinburgh author Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus series.
An ancient feudal barony, Broughton can be roughly defined as the area between Leith Walk in the south east, Broughton Street in the south west, Broughton Road in the north west and McDonald Road in the north east.
