The exhibition that we went to here on epigenetics was really interesting. The gallery is quite small but overlooks the workshop. We probably spent about 20 minutes there. You can also buy prints there.

The Printmakers workshop is a powerhouse of creativity and talent. I've been to numerous exhibitions, talks, and presentations, and I always find some work that really moves me. So many fantastic, cutting edge, artists working and exhibiting under one roof. Remarkable and unique. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Its a wonderful place.

We visited here to see the dark matter exhibition for the science festival. First and foremost, the staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a tour around the workshop, which was fascinating as there were so many different types of printing and there were artists available who were more than happy to show you their work and explain the...

I regulary visit Galleries in Edinburgh and Edinburgh Printmakers has to be one of my favourites. Not only a gallery but a functioning Print studio (When some Galleries can be a little dull this is a powerhub of activity) and you see the artists at work from a little window in the upstairs gallery. Recently I attended the short film... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
