Broughton proximity to the Edinburgh’s city centre and New Town make it a popular area to live in – located directly in the heart of Edinburgh's east end.
Broughton is nearby to Easter Road, the home of Hibernian F.C and as such is home to a lot of football supporters. If rugby is more your cup of tea, Murrayfield is a couple of miles away.
The heart of the area is Broughton Street, which opens up a world of relaxed cafes, independent shops and eclectic restaurants. It is also home to the St James Shopping Centre, The Playhouse Theatre and Omni Centre at the top of Broughton Street.
Broughton’s beautiful property, laid back atmosphere and convenience for both the centre of town and Leith make for a competitive area for finding property. For a more affordable area consider looking further afield to areas like Joppa.
