New Edinburgh

New Edinburgh is a small and quaint old neighbourhood in Ottawa. Located to the east of the downtown core it is bordered on the west by the Rideau River, to the north by the Ottawa River and to the south by Beechwood Avenue.  To the east the border is less regular but is marked in part by Springfield Drive and Maple Lane. The area is a mature neighbourhood with a variety of styles & heritage and is fairly affluent, though not to the same degree as neighbouring Rockcliffe Park.The charm is enhanced by many heritage properties dotted through out the neighbourhood that are often backing or fronting onto “secret” little laneways.

Government House, more commonly referred to as Rideau Hall,  and  home to the Governor General of Canada is the largest residence in New Edinburgh. The Prime Minister’s residence, frequently referred to as 24 Sussex resides also in this little neighbourhood. New Edinburgh is the home to many foreign states including the British High Commission, The French Embassy, as well as the High Commision of South Africa and the embassy of Viet Namm
