Accommodation & Location

Our courses are non-residential as participants prefer to make their own accommodation arrangements. A wide range of accommodation is available in central Edinburgh and it is easy to reach the hospital postgraduate centres by public transport or taxi.

Parking is available at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for £7 per day. Alternatively, use the Park & Ride located just north of the  A7 exit from the A720 south Edinburgh ring road. Frequent buses to the hospital take 10 minutes.

There is one visitors’ car park at the main entrance to the Western General Hospital and there is some metered street parking nearby – try to come by public transport if you can.

Check the Lothian buses site for information. A day ticket allows unlimited travel by bus throughout Edinburgh.
