It lies immediately to the north of Morningside and south of Bruntsfield; technically it is part of Burghmuirhead, together with Holy Corner. All of Burghmuirhead was once part of the lands of Greenhill. The original Burghmuirhead House remains at the end of a lane on the west side of Morningside Road near Church Hill (the street) itself. To the west is Merchiston and east are Greenhill and The Grange. The area is mainly Georgian and Victorian villas, and Victorian tenements, often with shops at ground-floor level.
Church Hill Theatre is a venue owned by the Edinburgh City Council. Built originally as Morningside Baptist Church, the council purchased it in 1960. After undergoing an extensive refurbishment, it re-opened in August 2006.
