Excellent venue, access and services
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Symbol Cane
The City Arts Gallery is a utilised venue for events, exhibitions and during the EIF as a venue. It’s directly across the road from the Market Street entrance and exit to Waverley Station, the only bus route directly is a Lothian buses service 6. The venue is spacious, fully appointed access with power assist doors a wide lift and adequate a fully provisioned toilets. Although I was there for an event, cannot praise the staff highly enough, helpful and the awareness of how they responded to our different mobility and assistance needs was terrific.
Transport & Parking
Due to construction work and proximity of the railway station access via pavements from Cockburn Street is narrow and temporary on the South side, there is controlled crossing next to the station and the taxi rank directly opposite. Further eastwards towads East Market Street and Jeffrey Street, there are disabled marked bays and a large NCP car park. Space for blue badge holders is limited, Market Street is a busy road and particularly congested at his time of the season. There is ample bus connections in all directions including trams and the airport link and Edinburgh tour buses.
Being a council venue, good signage, level and clear access via lifts to every floor.
Fully appointed toilet which also has Radar key access and changing places status, clean with servicing record which was up to timescale.
Again being Council, very and appropriately aware, helpful, informative and attentive.
