The City Chambers

253, High Street, Edinburgh

2013

The City Chambers are situated in the High Street, part of Edinburgh's Royal Mile - across the road from St Giles' Church.  The building extends several floors above and several floors below the ground,.  There is an exit from one of the lower floors into Cockburn Street.

Many of the City of Edinburgh Council Departments are now based nearby in new offices at East Market Street, to the east of Waverley Station, but the City Chambers in the High Street are still also being used.
