The Workshop is housed in a vast Victorian building which was a former railway workshop originally known as Workshop No.1. With girders left intact, it is a totally transformed showpiece, an up-market shopping, browsing, dining and entertainment complex. It houses over 120 specialty shops and Victorian-style barrow stalls, which decorate the ground floor. You'll find everything from expensive clothes to fast food. This complex probably has the largest collection of African curio shops in Durban. There is tax-free shopping for tourists and a helpful information desk.
