    Discount store that's always packed with people trying to find good deals. I found really nice stuff that's was cheap (for the UK) - still expensive when you compare it from back home. It's funny that the sale prices is what we'd pay in Canadian dollars not pounds! Really nice clothes in the UK but very expensive.

  • The Royal Mile

    Edinburgh Shopping

    Well, the Armouries used to have a shop to themselves, but they've since been moved to the top of the Royal Mile, inside the tartan weaving mill. As such, it's now more of a department within a shop, and has lost some of its character. This is made up for though in the knowledge of its staff (at the time of writing, i'm one of them :p), who will...
