Princess Street Gardens is the most popular park in the centre of Edinburgh, adjacent to Edinburgh Castle. It runs alongside the south of Princess Street and is divided by The Mound.
The Gardens were created in two phases in the 1770s and 1820s, following the draining of Nor loch and the building of the New Town. Today, The Gardens include a famous floral clock, first planted in 1903 and made out of around 30,000 plants.
Various concerts and other events are held throughout the year, including the Festival Fireworks Concert, Men's Health Survival of the Fittest, and the city's Hogmanay celebrations.
