Leith Walk ends and the road divides with one branching into Queen Street and the other following the contour of calton Hill and joining Princes Street...

A lot is packed into this small area including the ghastly St James Centre with its anchor tenant, John Lewis. Opposite is the newer (and equally facile) Omni Centre with the Edinburgh Playhouse a another 50 yards down the road. With a big theatre in residence it is no surprise that there is a herd of local restaurants serving the theatre crowd. Just of the main streets in Broughton Street everything becomes a little more salubrious and interesting.
