By Bus

The Western General Hospital is between Crewe Road South and Telford Road in the Craigleith area of Edinburgh. The hospital is well served by public transport. However, services are subject to change. For up-to-date information about routes and times, please contact Traveline Scotland 0870 608 2608

By Car

Unfortunately there is not much room for parking in the hospital grounds and you may not be able to find a parking space. We would advise visitors who live in the Edinburgh area to travel, if possible, by bus or arrange to be dropped off at the hospital by car. There are designated parking spaces for patients and visitors and there is a small charge. Disabled parking places are marked on the map at the Paderewski Building.

By Rail

Edinburgh Waverley is about 20 minutes away from the hospital by car or taxi, for details please contact National Rail enquiries on 0845 748 4950
