Due to the popularity of the Open Weekend event car parks are expected to be busy, so visitors are being encouraged to travel by public transport. Local residents are encouraged to cycle or walk. Parking will be charged at £5 per car which will be donated to SAMH. If the car park reaches capacity attendees will be asked to find on-street parking in South Queensferry and walk to the marina.

Entry: Free (no booking required)
Top tips:
12-2.30pm is our busiest time, why not consider coming a little earlier or later and avoid the queues. We expect Sunday to be quieter so come then for a more relaxed atmosphere. Some traders/activities take cash-only payments so we recommend bringing cash with you.
