World class British art work brought to Edinburgh, there is not another gallery like it so far north. Easily accessible as it is just behind Waverly Station, and on street metered parking is available. The space is large and the exhibitions can afford to be ambitious because of the size. There is also an excellent print room for the more... More

This small gallery has never disappointed in all the times I've visited; it has a track record of interesting and innovative displays, and a good choice of artists. My most recent visit was during the Paterson exhibition mentioned below which was beautiful and thought-provoking. In relation to the other comment below, in 6 years of visiting the Ingleby I've found... More

Talk about being made to feel like we were interfering in somebody's day. Staff here are not welcoming or even bothered to answer questions or interested in their work. Went to see a conceptual art display which incidentally was so poorly displayed, all meaning was lost. It should have been great. We had had a heads up about the display... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
