Edinburgh New Town Map
A map of the New Town of Edinburgh with all the monuments, plaques, statues,
historic buildings and their history
Edinburgh new town was built due to overcrowding of the old town. The original new town was three main streets a Garden square at each end and smaller streets running from north to south, with two narrow streets one between Princes Street and George Street and one between George Street and Queen Street the same length as the three main streets. The first House was built in 1767 and still stands today. The maps below show all the things to lookout for in the new town and in the extended new town north of Queen Street. Also included in this map is Leith.
