Anyone in Edinburgh know if Morrison Street car park is still there?

I have an appointment near Haymarket on a weekday and was wondering where I could park my car (cheaply!) for just over an hour. The old goods yard at Morrison Street used to be used by NCP and din't cost too much but I can't find it on their website now so I guess the land has maybe been used for something else now. I've driven along there just a few weeks ago and didn't notice. I checked car parks such as Sheraton or Castle Terrace but they are fairly expensive.

I know I could park in Castle Terrace or at the Sheraton but it annoys me to have to pay £7.10 and £6 respectively for just over an hour.

Anyone know of any parking near Haymarket which won't cost an arm and a leg? I might just be better getting a bus....

The big flat car park opposite Diane's Pool Hall? It's now closed, and is being used for more flats. The nearest parking nearby is at Cineworld, and remember to validate your parking card in Cineworld before you go, if you want free parking.

Thank you! I had already looked at NCP website and for some reason it didn't come up under a search for 'Edinburgh' - strange! (The irony is that part of what I am doing when I will park the car there is showing off just how clever I am at finding information on the internet, haha! :p)

Thank you, I was thinking I might have to drive there in advance to check it so you have saved me a trip. I already checked Google Street View but that can be somewhat outdated - knowing my observational skills there could have been a huge new building there and I probably wouldn't have noticed!

Just called NCP to check the tariff as the link above doesn't give any cost. NCP customer services inform me that it closed in January this year. :( Goodness knows why it's still on their website but that maybe explains why it doesn't appear under a general search.

tbh I had trouble finding it as well, it took me nearly a whole split second to think of using google to search for the term "Morrison Street car park", I then had to work out the first result was the one you wanted :p

That's the one! I won't be parking there then :( Good thinking about Cineworld, thanks!
