Princes Street Station was a mainline railway station which stood at the west end of Princes Street, in Edinburgh, Scotland, for almost 100 years.

A temporary station was opened in 1870, with construction of the main station commencing in the 1890s.

The 1870 temporary Princes Street station was rebuilt, between 1890 and 1893 to become a grand station with seven platforms and an 850 ft long bayed roof.

The station was closed completely in 1965 and largely demolished in 1970
