Travelling to BioQuarter (Little France)

By car

Nine Edinburgh BioQuarter is not directly accessible directly from the Little France / RIE area. Instead, vehicular access is from Little France Road, off of Old Dalkeith Road/A7.

Due to the multi-tenancy nature of Nine BioQuarter, parking is extremely limited. It is not covered by the University permit system. Please contact your host or meeting organiser for more information or to request local parking.

Paid parking facilities are available at the Royal Infirmary, a short walk away. There are also regular buses to the hospital from the nearby free Sheriffhall Park & Ride facility.
