Princes Street is a popular shopping destination located in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. The buzzing strip is a must-visit for those seeking high street fashion, unique boutiques, or popular chains like Zara and Primark. The street is about 1.2 kilometres long, meaning you can quite easily walk the length of it as you meander in and out of the stores. It forms one of the borders of Edinburgh’s New Town, connecting with Leith Street in the eastern direction and Lothian Road out to the west. The road is restricted to general traffic, only allowing trams, buses and taxis for the majority of it.
Princes Street has an interesting history that dates back to the 18th Century when it was known as Lang Dykes, a medieval lane in what was then a country region. The street got its name from the eldest son of King George III, Prince George, Duke of Rothesay. The 19th century saw the street transform from predominantly residential buildings to various retail outlets that provided a foundation for the street to flourish into the shopping hub it is today. The organic development of the strip meant the aesthetic appearance was quite disjointed, so in 1967 plans were developed to redevelop the area. The intention was to improve the overall cohesiveness of the street as well as create more street frontage for retail. Today, it is the go-to shopping destination in Edinburgh.
Princes Street is home to a diverse range of shops that draw huge crowds to the area. If you need to update your wardrobe or are simply in the mood for some retail therapy, Princes Street is exactly what you’re looking for.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!
Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
