1-9 St Andrew Square, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH2 2AD
Dating back to the 18th Century, St Andrew Square is a prominent attraction in the heart of Edinburgh. The square is easily distinguishable by the ornate column of the Melville Monument, built in honor of the first Viscount Melville, Henry Dundas. A number of historical buildings cast their shadows on this important city square; while the Dundas House stands on the square's eastern end, the 19th-century British Linen Bank building captures attention with its neoclassical form. The renovated St Andrew gardens also form part of the square. Its beautiful landscape unfolds under moody Edinburgh skies, and it forms the backdrop for a host of cultural events and exhibitions.
