Venue Details

Getting there

The whole complex is situated at number 60, Pleasance, very near to the city centre and is accessible by train, bus, and car. It is actually located in the Pleasance Courtyard. By train and tube: The nearest railway station is Waverley Street and from there it is a short ten-minute walk to the Pleasance Cabaret Bar or, alternatively, you can take a bus from the station. By bus: the number 64 Lothian bus runs nearest to the Pleasance Complex. By car: the complex is accessible by car but not very easily. Coming from the centre take George IV Bridge into Bristo Place, turn left into Lothian Street and on into Potterow, and the Pleasance complex is on the right. International: From Edinburgh Airport, about 8 miles out from the city centre, take a bus, train, tram or taxi. The Airlink 100 Express or the N22 night bus both take about 25 minutes to get to the city centre.

Parking facilities

Parking is a problem here unless you are lucky enough to find a side street place. The nearest car park is probably Waverley Bridge, and then a ten-minute walk from there. The park has disabled parking spots, though. 

Accessibility for people with special needs

There is wheelchair access here, and the staff is very accommodating with regards to helping. It is very dimly lit inside for those with visual impairment. Please contact the venue for further details.
