The Edinburgh International Book Festival is hosted at the Edinburgh College of Art as part of a long-term partnership with the University of Edinburgh. We would like to thank the University of Edinburgh for their support in making this year’s Book Festival possible.

For information on reaching the Book Festival by public transport, visit the Lothian Buses, Edinburgh Trams or Traveline Scotland websites. 



Parking in the city

As a member of the Green Arts Initiative, we encourage the use of public transport wherever possible to reduce the environmental impact of the Book Festival. Edinburgh is also very busy during August and parking spaces are limited. 

If you do need to come by car, there is a multi-storey car park in Castle Terrace, about a ten minute walk away from the Book Festival Village. You can pull in just outside the entrance of the Book Festival on Lauriston Place to drop off wheelchair users.
