Walking to Work - Omni Centre
Having turned right from Pilrig Street onto Leith Walk, I am now approaching the Omni Centre at the Top of the Walk (also mentioned in a post a few days ago). This "home of entertainment in Edinburgh" was designed by Allan Murray Architects and was opened in 2002, having cost £73m to build. It houses a large cinema, a health club and several bars and restaurants. It also incorporates the facade of a 19th century church (to the left) which, surprisingly, gives entry to the very modern Glasshouse Hotel!
