Restoring your historic shopfront

Shopfronts play a very important role in the city’s unique historic character. A single high-quality shopfront can make a significant improvement to the streetscape.

Traditional architectural details that are hidden or neglected can easily be revitalised, helping to define the character of street and enhancing the shopping experience.

Apply for funding

Edinburgh World Heritage has a Conservation Funding Programme to help improve shopfronts within the World Heritage Site. We offer grants that can cover up to 70% of eligible works.
