I ordered some flowers for my mum’s birthday just after 9.00am and they were delivered by 12 noon. My mum was absolutely delighted with the ‘hat box’ flowers I chose and said they were absolutely beautiful! Would highly recommend – thank you so much.

Niddrie Florist

Are you that someone who enjoys having a tour in a beautiful place and discovering the wonders of nature? Invite your friends now or your special someone and have a quick tour in the town of Niddrie!
Niddrie is located on the southeast of the city, southwest of the seaside area of Portobello, and west of Musselburgh in East Lothian, close to Fort Kinnaird retail park. The town’s name is considered to be of Brythonic origin, nuada tref, which means new settlement. It was historically known as Niddry Marischal.
The majority of the area was owned by the Wauchope family until the 1930s. Archibald Wauchope of Niddrie was a supporter of the rebel Earl of Bothwell in the 1590s. Eventually, the Wauchope family donated their lands to the city.

The Edinburgh Corporation built social housing in Niddrie Mains from 1927 up to the mid of 1930s. The designs were catered by Ebenezer James MacRae, the City Architect. The major slum clearance scheme was linked to this new housing project in the St. Leonard’s Ward of Edinburgh. The families from cleared areas and the local coal mining families from Niddrie were housed together.

During the 1980s and 1990s, there was a high crime rate in Niddrie and it became a rampant problem in town during these years. Some criminal acts involved antisocial behaviour, gang fights, and knife crimes. For years, the town also had problems with joyriding, and stealing cars and motorbikes among the younger generation.

Niddrie may have had encountered some unfortunate events in the past but what is essential is the current developments of the town. Currently, the Niddrie Mains estate is almost demolished and there are no attempts made to reconstruct the buildings. The lot has been mostly assigned for private housing. The Arms Length Management Organisation, PARC, is recently developing the site into a new primary school for the area. The organisation is owned fully by the Edinburgh City Council. They joint the campuses of old Niddrie Mill Primary School and St. Francis Primary School.

The town of Niddrie has become the epitome of the saying there’s a rainbow after the rain. Looking at its splendid attractions will leave you in awe and you will not even remember that the town has experienced dilemmas in the past. Some of the notable tourist destinations in Niddrie are the Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, and Princess Street.
