‘Great, up and coming spot to spend the day when visiting Edinburgh. Far enough away from Edinburgh City centre to have its own identity but so close that it is easy to make the journey there. Spend a day here, grab some brunch in one of the trendy little gastro bars, check out the little museums and galleries’
– Leith Tripadvisor Review
Eat and Drink
There’s no shortage of great places to eat and drink here. Top Chefs Tom Kitchin and Martin Wishart both have award-winning restaurants in the area. Or, for more laid-back dining, there several great pubs and bars, family restaurants, artisan bakeries and well-known chains. So it is a great place to come and dine and it is well worth making time to visit and enjoy some of the culinary delights that are in store.
Shop Till You Drop
Leith is home to Ocean Terminal, a modern shopping centre with high street shops. It also has many places to eat and drink, a cinema, gym and soft play centre.
Every Saturday, you can visit Leith Market, where you’ll find fresh, local produce, hand-made gifts and other treats. Or, for a spot of bargain hunting, there’s the Out of the Blue Flea Market for clothes, jewellery, furniture and bric-a-brac.
