Leith Creative Trail // 2023


You can download a digital map HERE,

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 and with however many venues you opt for. The more the merrier in our opinion, but we would encourage you to go to at least two venues you have never been to. Curiosity didn’t kill the cat. 

We recommend starting on Ferry Road at Hilda, Mote 102, SilverHub Studios and then Sierra Metro, follow the lane down to Coburg House and Leith Market, swing a left to Stampalofi and then back through to Hot Snakes at Coburg House, Ruth Leslie + Gina Burgess Designs and Edinburgh Tool Library at Custom Lane. Jump across the road to Cyan Clayworks and then head to Edinburgh Open Workshop, The Bunker and then up to Leith Makers (and then the pub).

If you manage the full trail – that really is some proper Leith perseverance.
