Lively area with restuarants and bars aplenty well worth a trip down Leith Walk to enjoy what is on offer.

We wanted so hard to like Leith but could not. We walked down Leith walk from Edinburgh central. About half way down the shops changed into tattoo parlours and Turkish barbers and the number of high revving cars zooming up the enticingly wide boulevard grew....More

Proper old school pub with old school graffiti in the toilets :) Great music, querky atmosphere and some interesting characters drinking in there. I loved it, would recommend for a romantic night out though.

I hadn't been down to Leith for around 20 years, and was very pleasantly surprised at how the area has become fascinating in a good sort of way. The walk down Leith Walk is an architectural kaleidoscope with many grand styles in a complete hotch...More

An historic part of Scotland's history, dockyards, early government, ancient history all at your fingertips. Great cafe's, restaurants and local eateries. Plenty of public transport to and from all parts of Edinburgh.

Basically this area is none other than the port of Edinburgh, where you will also find the Ocean Terminal shopping center, suitable for a rainy day, and from where you can start visiting the Royal Yacth Britannia! Not to be missed!

Few Xmas decorations around and it was drizzling weather post the Xmas snow. There are limited places to park. Some of the boats are looking decrepit unfortunately. There are a few restaurants. An interesting navy memorial. Buses go onto Ocean Terminal shops from Edinburgh.
