Parking in Edinburgh

Queens Guest House is located in the very heart of Edinburgh city centre and as such, does not have its parking facilities.  When you come to stay at Queens Guest House by car, you need to know the best places for parking in Edinburgh, and we would recommend parking at either the “Q-Park” or the “Castle Terrace” car parks, both of which are located 10 minutes away, on foot, from our property.


There are designated parking bays on George Street and some other neighbouring streets.

Please, always check the nearest ticket machine to ensure you pay the correct price as there may be variations in rate and maximum stay times in each area.

Parking zones are indicated on the street by large zone entry signs that denote the number and times that parking is restricted.

Streets Price from 1 April 2018    Hours of  Operation
Queen St, St Andrew Sq, Charlotte sq, George St, Market St & Cockburn St £4.20 per hour  Monday to  Saturday               8.30am to 6.30pm
