We’ve been steadily adding feeder rides to our Getting There page
– and do tell us if you’re planning one so we can add it to the others – but we felt our latest feeder ‘ride’ deserved a post all of its own.
Following on from her blog post about why she’ll be pedestrianing on Parliament, Denise Marshall has organised a feeder walk from Waverley Station for those coming by train from out-of-town. It will be definitely child- and family-friendly: prams, pushchairs, wheelchairs and walkers– all will be most welcome and the feeder walk will be paced accordingly.
Meet at the station in the open space by Platform 2.
We’ll depart at 11:00am for the (approximately) 30 minute (1 mile) uphill walk to the Meadows. This leaves time for us to walk slower if necessary and still have a rest in the Meadows before continuing on to the Parliament.
- Exit the station by the North Ramp
- Travel South down Waverley Bridge
- Cross the street and turn West onto Market Street
- Turn South onto Bank Street
- Continue straight onto George IV Bridge
- Cross Chamber’s Street to continue on George IV Bridge
- Cross in front of Bedlam Theatre to Forrest Road
- Cross to arrive at The Meadows on Middle Meadow Walk
While this is a step-free route, there may be kerbs and street furniture to be negotiated. Also, there are wide pavements for the majority of the journey but we may need to walk in a narrow queue at times — please be courteous to Edinburgh’s other foot traffic if we are a large group.
Bring your friends, family, and a picnic blanket (a flag, sign or banner wouldn’t go amiss either!) to join our walk in support of Pedal on Parliament!
