We usually operate a one-way system to enter and exit our car park. You'll come into the car park using the Queen’s Walk entrance (Upper Duke Street) and exit via Upper Parliament Street.
Occasionally the Cathedral, or parts of it, may need to close or only offer restricted access for a service, special event or day-to-day maintenance. We try to minimise these periods as much as we can, as we know that people travel long distances to visit us. Please note that closures and restricted access may also affect our car park. We've listed some alternative, nearby parking below.
Please remember to check for last-minute changes prior to your visit as some events, such as funerals, are only arranged at short notice. For up-to-date car parking charges you can call the Constables' Lodge.
