Where we are

Ten Hill Place is situated next to the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, approximately 10 minutes walk from Princes Street or Edinburgh Castle. Due to open in Easter 2021 St James Quarter, the new lifestyle district within the city is an attractive and vibrant destination offering an impressive array of shops, boutiques and restaurants. The centre is within easy walking distance of Surgeons Quarter.
