Nice commercial centre with a cinema, some shops and restaurant!
Nice view on the see as well!
A bit expensive but worth it to go.

The empty stores don't give a good impression, and putting tacky toys and teddies in one empty window display makes it look tacky !. The customer service looked unprofessional and untidy, and an after thought .

So many empty units. Must be at least 30% empty now.

Feels a bit downtrodden. Roof was leaking and the lift didn't display what floor it was on.

On the plus side you're well catered for with a number of chain restaurants on the same floor as the cinema.

Two large stores (Debenhams and BHS) are the bookstops for the usual range of shops over 2 levels. Plenty of free parking.
Sited by the Firth of Forth, there are lovely views across to Fife. The Firth is also home to the Royal Yacht Britannia. The second floor restaurant of Debenhams gives good views of the "Yacht" without incurring the entrance charge of 12.50GBP pp.
A multiscreen cinema completes the attraction.

A nice shopping centre just a couple of miles out of the city centre of Edinburgh and home to the former royal yacht Britannia. It's a nice setting - close to Newhaven and a very little used ferry terminal. The building makes the most of the views and it's nice to sit and gaze out to sea or the the Forth at least. Free parking makes it an attractive place to visit on a rainy day but that's about the only thing that is free here. There's a pretty average collection of shops and quite a few empty ones which isn't brilliant. Tried to buy a CD but HMV has gone now and there was only a meagre selection in BHS. There's a gym and a spa and a kids play area with ball pools and nets although it costs. Britannia is interesting but not more than once although the shop has some nice knick-knacks. There's a multi-plex cinema and a very wide choice of branded restaurants. I suppose it's better than Princes St but Glasgow tends to do this sort of thing better than Edinburgh and I can't help thinking this odd mixture of leisure facilities doesn't really work.
