The West End is part of the New Town, which was constructed during the Georgian Era in the 18th century when the medieval town centre was no longer able to contain Edinburgh’s growing population. The wealthy families moved away from the crowded centre into this elegant neighbourhood, which remains to this day one of the world’s finest examples of city planning and Georgian architecture.
