Situated in the the heart of Leith's scenic waterside shore area and central to Edinburgh's creative hub.

Custom Lane is located on Commercial Street and is accessible via Customs Wharf which runs along the water. The Shore is a buzzing creative port district in north Edinburgh, home to a diverse range of creative organisations, architects, production agencies and artists’ studios. Luckily for us, there are rows of bars and restaurants on our door step.

Custom Lane gallery and café are open 7 days a week and are free to access. Please check our what’s on page before you plan to attend.  Some events require you to book via Eventbrite.
