Photographs of the George Street, Edinburgh.

Situated to the north of Princes Street, George Street is the centre of the city's financial district.

Laid out from 1767 as part of James Craig's plan for the New Town, George Street was named in honour of King George III.

The street links Charlotte Square with St. Andrew's Square and is the site of several notable buildings including the Assembly Rooms (1787), St Andrew and St George's Church (1784) and others by David Rhind (1808-83) and David Bryce (1803-76) which were previously the headquarters of banks, such as the grand melange of Greek and Roman styles which now houses the Dome bar and night-club (1847).
