Free Christmas Parking in Edinburgh City Centre

Submitted by edg on Wed, 23 Oct '13 6.39pm

Parking charges on many city centre streets will be waived again from 5pm this Christmas shopping season.

As in previous years, the initiative will continue as part of Alive after Five, from 2 December until 28 December inclusive.

Andy Neal, Chief Executive at Essential Edinburgh, the organisation that runs the Alive After Five campaign, said: β€œAll of our research has shown that people – both visitors and those working in the city centre – would like to do more shopping after work, and would also make more use of the bars and restaurants in the early evening. Essential Edinburgh has instigated and funded these initiatives so that our levy-payers get the best possible chance to boost their early evening trade.”
