Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre.
Ocean Terminal in Leith, is a shopping centre, designed by Sir Terence Conran and opened in 2001.
It is built on former industrial docklands on the north side of the city at the edge of the boundary between formerly separate ports of Newhaven and Leith. The land was formerly occupied by the Henry Robb shipyard, which closed in 1983. Since then, the entire area has undergone urban renewal and regeneration, much led by and on the lands in the ownership of Forth Ports.
The now-decommissioned Royal Yacht Britannia, which is accessed via the Britannia Visitor Centre within Ocean Terminal, is permanently berthed next to the building and can be viewed from the centre.
BHS and Debenhams are the Terminal's anchor stores; in total there are some 85 stores, 4 restaurants, 3 coffee shops stores, a variety of bars, as well as a cinema.
