Parking in Edinburgh city centre can be tricky, as the medieval city streets were not designed to host the number of visitors attracted to the city in modern times.
Do you need a parking space near George Street or Princes Street, or another central street in Edinburgh? Keep in mind that parking restrictions are in place on many city streets. Different parking zones have different parking restrictions, so this is something to look out for. Parking zones are indicated on the streets by large zone entry signs that display the zone number and the times that parking is restricted. Other parking restrictions to look out for include:
Double yellow lines, where you can't park.
Single yellow lines, where you can only park at certain times. Be sure to check the signs when parking on these.
Residents’ parking schemes are also in place around Edinburgh. In these areas, residents need to apply for a parking permit from the City of Edinburgh Council.
It is always worth being aware of parking restrictions that are found on bus routes and main roads to keep traffic moving during busy times in the city centre. There may also be restrictions around busy shopping areas and in residential areas around schools, junctions and crossings.
