A-Z of Secret Edinburgh: Elvis Shakespeare

Elvis Shakespeare - books and music, perfectly combined

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.
