Parking in St Andrews

There are several places to park during your stay at the Ardgowan Hotel. Though some of them require that you pay to park, many of them, conveniently located within a short walk of the hotel, are free.

Our personal recommendations for free parking are:

1.  Abbotsford Crescent, which is the street located just opposite the hotel. There are also two streets connected to Abbotsford Crescent, Hope Street and Howard Place.

2.  Murray Car Park, just east of the hotel. It is about a 2 minute walk to the hotel

3.  Petheram Bridge Car Park is a bit further, about a half-mile walk from the hotel, but it offers 300 spaces for car parking and can be useful if you’re unable to find anything else closer.

There is also a car park down by the West Sands beach which is payable from the 1st April until 30th September from 9am until 5pm, but after that it’s free (including the autumn and winter months!) so if you have had a long day at the beach and don’t feel like moving your car this could be the perfect spot for you!

Please see below for a detailed map of our parking recommendations.


Parking on North Street just in front of the hotel is also free on the single yellow line from 5:00pm to 9:00am Monday to Saturday and all day Sundays.
