Visiting Lauriston Castle
For our guests staying at Parliament House Hotel in the city centre, it’s easy to reach Lauriston Castle. Simply take a 20-minute bus ride from Princes Street to Davidson’s Mains or Silverknowes Terminus. Lauriston is around 10 minutes’ walk from both stops. If you’re driving, there is a free car park on site.
The castle is open for tours on selected days, but please check in advance before travelling. However, the grounds are open daily and access is free. See opening times and ticket prices here.
