Getting There

By Car

Finding parking space in Edinburgh at the best of times can be a challenge – public transport is recommended wherever possible. Edinburgh City Council run a number of Park & Ride schemes servicing the city centre.

There are numerous car parks around Edinburgh city centre. The most convenient for the Pleasance sites is the NCP Holyrood Road (2 Viewcraig Gardens, Edinburgh, EH8 9UL) with 297 spaces including 4 disabled bays.

The closest car park to Whitespace is NCP Castle Terrace (Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2EW), with 750 spaces including 6 disabled bays.

The Pleasance is well served by local bus services. The following all run along Nicholson Street (Festival Theatre), from which The Pleasance is a very short walk. Please note that all services run via North Bridge: Lothian Bus 8, 3/3A, 5, 7, 14, 29, 30, 31, 33, 37/37A, 49.
