Directions to The Workshop Shopping Centre

Durban is certainly not short of shopping experiences, offering an elaborate multitude of shopping highlights for the discerning shopper and those of the 'pop in and pop out' denomination. One such highlight is the Workshop Shopping Centre that has been built into the original railway workshop of the Durban station. Harnessing the history of the railway workshop that dates back to 1860 and injecting it with modern day influence, the Workshop Shopping Centre is a fusion of olden day charm and current day consumer pleasure. This Durban shopping focal point still has the original iron girders and vaulted glass roof in place that support the framework of this modern day masterpiece.

A melting pot of shops, restaurants, fast food outlets, banks and entertainment venues contribute to the overall energetic vibe at the Workshop. The shops that can be found at this Durban shopping haven vary from department stores such as CNA, Identity, Truworths, Legit and Mr Price, to your service providers such as Foto-First, Workshop Pharmacy, Computicket and Vodashop. there are also a number of alternate boutique stores for those looking to buy something unique by way of clothing, gifts, jewellery or accessories. Shoppers both local and international can find everything they are looking for within this Durban shopping arena, and might find themselves pleasantly surprised by the small additions that make the Workshop into an exuberant display of retail bliss.

The Eastern appeal from Durban's vast Indian community is prevalent in many of these shops, as is the flavour of Europe and the continental catwalk style. The Workshop Shopping Centre is certainly not without South African flair either, and is always making commendable efforts to connect with the South African community through cultural events, awareness initiatives, fashion shows and exhibitions as well as an enticing number of special offers.

A typical day out at the Workshop Shopping Centre in Durban might include a leisurely breakfast at the Wimpy, who are renowned across South Africa for their breakfasts; then a spot of clothes shopping at NV Clothing or any one of the number of speciality clothing outlets. Grocery shopping is made easy at the Pick n Pay, and you could always take in a movie for R10.00 at the Workshop's Cinema Screen Entertainment area. Stop off for an ice cream at Scoops Ice-Cream Parlour after your movie, taking in all the flavours of this diverse historic environment as you stroll through the walkways.

The Workshop Shopping Centre is a must see for all intrepid and adventurous travelers, as it encompasses all aspects of Durban life as well as a generous helping of South African history. All of this is offered alongside an extraordinary shopping experience.
