Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre: Home of Yacht Britannia!
On my wanderings I made a comfort stop at Edinburgh's largest shopping centre. I'm not a fan of shopping so I just went into Starbucks for a drink and also visited the lookout for take photographs of the Firth of the Forth.
The Ocean Terminal has a variety of shops and departments stores. For non shoppers there is a Vue cinema and also a day spa. The main tourist attraction is the Royal Yacht Britannia - I didn't visit the attraction but you can find out further information via its website. The shopping centre has a car park and offers the usual customer facilities.
Ocean Terminal: Down by the sea
Ocean Terminal is a shopping mall that just happens to be beside the sea and has the former Royal Yacht Brittania berthed outside it. The exterior could have been done better but once inside there are large propellers brassoed till they gleam underneath the escalators in the bright and airy central hallway. In addition to the standard shops and a cinema there are rather unique furniture shops and galleries. There is even a Baxters shop to complement some excellent restaurants.

Ocean Terminal: All Under One Roof
A new shopping mall. It's not the BIGGEST mall around, but it's quite nice with some good quality shops and a multiplex cinema. It also has a pretty good food court and some pubs and coffee bars.
What to buy: One of my favourite shops was "The Bear Factory" where you can design your own custom made teddy bear (or other animal), and watch him being made.
We're gonna take our Niece to the Newcastle one soon ;-)
