Leith is an area like no other. Boasting its own distinct character, Leith is a hub of lively eating and drinking spots, creativity and cultural diversity.
The district of Leith rests on the shores of the Firth of Forth at the mouth of the Water of Leith and has been the port of Edinburgh for hundreds of years. The original harbour dates back to the 14th century, and thus has witnessed many travelling kings and queens.
Today, Leith is a vivacious area jam-packed with top restaurants boasting the best chefs, delicious delis and chic drinking spots. The district asserts a jovial attitude and hosts an eclectic mix of people and cultures ensuring exploring Leith is an unrivalled experience.
The most charming way into Leith is to follow the Water of Leith walkway from the city and emerge into the picturesque Shore area which is lined with bistros, stylish bars, traditional pubs and first-rate restaurants.
The five-star Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed alongside Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre and offers a fascinating insight into this unique, royal residence.
Leith is also known for its culture and creativity. As you explore the area, uncover independent galleries where you can purchase artworks and contemporary galleries too, such as the Corn Exchange Gallery. The district also plays host to various cultural festivals such as the Leith Festival and the Edinburgh Mela. Leith even has its own radio station.
Take a stroll up Leith Walk back into the centre of Edinburgh for a shopping experience like no other in the capital. The locals proudly boast that there is little to nothing you won’t be able to find on this street.
