Multrees Walk is a pedestrian shopping area off the east side of St. Andrew Square, Edinburgh, Scotland. Created in 2003 as part of a redevelopment, it links St Andrew Square and St James Shopping Centre and its shops sell luxury goods including clothing, stationery and handbags.
Harvey Nichols, the famous department store, is the anchor and "main attraction" of the development and it has its main entrance on St Andrew Square, but there is a smaller entrance on Multrees Walk. In most literature, this luxury store is often stated to belong to the exclusive Multrees Walk.
Multrees Walk, Harvey Nichols and Edinburgh Bus Station (which sits below 'Multrees Walk' and is accessed by escalators from St Andrew Square or from Elder Street) was designed by Edinburgh architects CDA
