Map of Edinburgh Castle Terrace

Edinburgh Castle Terrace

Edinburgh is widely considered to be one of Scotland’s most beautiful cities. Wearing most of its history on its sleeve, you’ll find that each of Edinburgh’s quarters has its own distinct character. From the atmospheric Medieval dwellings of the Old Town, to the ornate and elegant Georgian architecture of the New Town, there’s something interesting to see at every turn. The Edinburgh Castle Terrace NCP car park puts you in the thick of things, giving you quick access to some of the most impressive attractions that this stunning city has to offer.


Edinburgh Castle Parking

Dominating Edinburgh’s skyline is the imposing form of Edinburgh Castle, home of the Crown Jewels and the final resting place of Queen Margaret of Scotland. There are guided tours available every day, but the castle is shown at its best during the Edinburgh Festival, when the Royal Tattoo takes place, followed by a spectacular firework display. 

Traverse Theatre Parking

Established in the 1960s, the Traverse Theatre has continually proven itself to be one of the best and most popular theatres in Scotland. Just three minutes from the Edinburgh Castle Terrace NCP car park, the theatre favours new writers and has launched the careers of a number of playwrights such as Zinnie Harris, David Greig and Rob Drummond. In addition to producing world-class plays, the theatre also showcases the best in dance, music and the spoken word.

Parking for Edinburgh Camera Obscura

Edinburgh's Camera Obscura and World of Illusions is an interactive museum where you can learn about the city's history in a fun and engaging format. It's great for kids and adults alike and now hosts an illusions exhibit alongside the traditional periscope attraction. Find out more on the venues' website here. Our Castle Terrace car park is only a 10 minute walk from Camera Obscura.

Scottish National Gallery Parking

Designed by William Henry Playfair and located on the iconic Mound, the Scottish National Gallery is the national art gallery of Scotland. There are extensive exhibitions throughout the year, ranging from the classic to the contemporary. The gallery is family-friendly and organises a programme of events especially for children, including a monthly story-telling session for tiny tots. If you need a break or a bite to eat, the café is on hand, serving drinks and snacks. The Scottish National Gallery is only a ten-minute walk away from the Edinburgh Castle Terrace NCP car park, giving you the chance to explore Princes Street along the way.
