Lothian House is very well positioned to take advantage of a wide range of shopping outlets, supported by banks, building societies and a Post Office at Tollcross. A range of bars, restaurants, coffee houses, theatres and cinemas are also situated within a few minutes easy walking distance of Lothian House. These include the Odeon (situated at street level of Lothian House), Filmhouse and Cameo cinemas; Lyceum, Traverse and King’s theatres as well as the Usher Hall.
The Edinburgh International Conference Centre is very close by, in Morrison Street, whilst the Fountain Park leisure and recreational complex is also nearby. Princes Street and George Street are a short walk away. An efficient and extensive public transport network operates from the Lothian Road area to most parts of the town and surrounding areas, including Edinburgh Airport, and both Waverley and Haymarket train stations are easily accessible.
