Parking in Edinburgh city centre is notoriously difficult and unfortunately, the Club holds no parking spaces of its own but you have a few options depending on whether your top priority is cost, convenience or security. These are your options:

  • On-street parking directly outside the Club. Parking on Abercromby Place is metered Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 6.30pm at a cost of 75p every 15 minutes and restricted to a maximum stay of 4 hours. After the 4 hours, you may move the car to a new space and re-ticket. This is an expensive and time-consuming choice although the location is convenient.
  • On-street parking one street north of the Club. Parking on Northumberland Street and Drummond Place is metered Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.30pm at a cost of 70p every 15 minutes, it is also restricted to a maximum stay of four hours but this is less of an issue as it is not metered on a Saturday. Depending on the time of arrival and plans to use the car during your stay you can conceivably leave the car in one spot from Friday to Sunday and pay a minimum.
  • Q-Park. There is a Q-park multi-storey car park at the Omni centre, a 24-hour rate is £20. This is approximately a 13-minute walk from the Club.

Whichever option you choose we suggest you come to the club, pay the meter opposite for 15 minutes, unload your things and our reception team can then give you directions to your preferred option.
