Less than half a mile west of Princes Street, and within easy walking distance of the desirable West End and the New Town, as well as the bustling business and finance quarter of Tollcross and Lothian Road, Fountainbridge has undergone significant regeneration and redevelopment since 2011 to become one of the most fashionable residential districts in the capital. Fountainbridge has a proud industrial heritage ranging from rubber manufacturing to brewing, much of which has been sympathetically retained in its traditional tenements and luxury loft-style apartment complexes. Residents of Fountainbridge are spoilt for choice when it comes to leisure and nightlife, with fantastic bars, restaurants, clubs and theatres right on their doorstep. These are supplemented with a multi-screen cinema, a bowling alley and a gym at Fountain Park. Fountainbridge is within the catchment area for Tollcross Primary School and James Gillespie's High School and is well-placed for a choice of independent childcare and schooling options. The area is also popular with students owing to its proximity to the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh Napier University. While Fountainbridge provides the perfect base for navigating the city on foot or by bike, the area is also served by fantastic public transport including an extensive bus and tram network, the nearest tram stop being at Haymarket station, which also offers fantastic national rail links.
