Welcome to Newhaven

Newhaven is a small, former fishing community harbour, on Edinburgh’s shoreline, and very close to the port of Leith, at which some cruise ships arrive.

Cruise vessels showing Newhaven (not to be confused with Newhaven in Sussex) will anchor off shore and tender into the harbour. All excursions leave from there.
