Edinburgh is awash with book shops and record shops. None, however, are quite like this Leith Walk institution, Elvis Shakespeare.
As the name suggests, this unassumingly-fronted shop doubles up as both. There’s a huge selection of rare records and books on offer at Elvis Shakespeare and the staff are more than happy to share their encyclopaedic knowledge with you over a cup of tea or coffee.
Alternative indie and punk memorabilia
They specialise in alternative indie and punk memorabilia and also run regular in-store gigs – many in the early afternoon, which feels jolly civilised!
Elvis Shakespeare, 347 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 8SD; open Monday – Saturday,10am-6pm.
