Princes Street is a major thoroughfare in central Edinburgh, Scotland and is the main shopping street in the capital. It is the southernmost street of Edinburgh's New Town, stretching around 1.6 kilometres from Lothian Road in the west, to Leith Street in the east. There are panoramic views of the Old Town and Edinburgh Castle due to almost no buildings on the south side of the street. The majority of the street is limited to trams, buses and taxis with only the east end open to all traffic. Princes Street features Scotland's largest Boots city store, Apple, Primark, H&M, Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, Topman and Topshop. Jenners department store (now owned by House of Fraser) is an Edinburgh institution, surviving the disappearance of many other local department stores. The Princes Street Gardens are accessible on the south side of the street.
