Leith Creative Trail – 2022



Welcome to Leith Creative Trail – A day when you can hit up the best of Leith’s Markets and Open Studios. It will be a jammy time, when you can visit some of Leith’s wonderful creative venues, filled to the brim of artists and craftspeople selling and exhibiting their products. 

Take the trail in whatever order you desire. We recommend starting at Coburg House Open Studios, scooting to Leith Farmers Market, hopping up to see Ruth Lesile at Custom Lane, sliding across the road to Edinburgh Open Workshop Makers Market and then meandering your way through to Out of the Blue – Drill Hall Market.  

Experience the Water of Leith, Quay and the vibrant, sunny (100% guaranteed) streets of Leith with fresh eyes.

Ready to get planning? You can download a digital map HERE, or can also pick up a paper copy of the map at any of the participating venues.
