From the Waverley Station
Leave by the Old Town (Market Street) exit – this is the footbridge that crosses the station between Princes Street and Princes Mall and the Old Town. Cross Market Street and go up the flight of steps facing you between the City Art Gallery and the Sports Bar. This is Fleshmarket Close.
From the Royal Mile
Come down Cockburn Street. This leaves the Royal Mile (Edinburgh High Street) very close to the cross roads with the North and South Bridge (known locally as “the bridges”). Fleshmarket Close is the first close, or flight of steps off Cockburn Street on the right.
If you come by car
You can park on Market Street or Cockburn Street for up to 2 hours for the cost of lots of pints of beer. You can park on East Market Street for up to 4 hours for just as much. For longer stay parking try the railway station car park on New Street (£12.00 for the day – less if somebody has a train ticket) or, if you get a space, try one of the hotel car parks on the Royal Mile. Parking in council run car parks and on the street is free after 6.30 and free all day on Sundays.
