Cheap Parking - Edinburgh

pagelad Posts: 32 Forumite

Does anyone know the cheapest place to park my car in the City Centre? I am staying from Friday afternoon to Monday morning and the prices are unreal.

I don't mind getting a bus into the centre if that's the best option.

    There is a park and ride at the airport. I think its free to park and you just have to pay for the bus into the centre.
    I love MSE freebies and comps. Thanks posters

    There is something somewhere on the council web page I think shows the parking zones. I have mentioned before Pilrig Street, Leith on street parking free and a 5-10 min walk to Princes Street.
    Johns Place, Elbe Street, both Leith area again free on street parking and a short bus ride into town. A lot depends on where you are staying or from what end of town you are coming in from. If get time I will see if I can find the parking zones.

    You can park in someone's drive (peace of mind for you and your car) for a fraction of what it costs to park on a meter or have to walk or get a bus from miles away. Edinburgh city centre is a nightmare and parking is really expensive.
  • Depending which side your coming from there are various park and rides.

    Inverkeithing, Wallyford, the airport.

    Depending where you are staying, some streets are free over the weekend.
