For foodies, Leith Market (every Saturday) is the perfect place to pick up fresh local produce, before tucking into some delicious street food. The bustling shopping area around Leith Walk is complemented by Ocean Terminal shopping centre, which offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities, including a variety of high-street stores, a selection of restaurants, a multiplex cinema, and a 24-hour gym.
