Driving around Aberdeen
Driving around Aberdeen is not too difficult. Parking in Aberdeen is decent too, with plenty of multi-storey car parks around the city. The new Union Square shopping center has a large carpark as does The Bon Accord Centre, close to the other shops, while other garages can be found along West North Street, Shiprow (close to the tourism centre), Huntly Street, Trinity Centre, and more. Park and ride is also a popular option nearby, from either Kingswells or the Bridge of Don area, with these car parks being linked by regular buses.
