Place to park

Recommended Posts

I have just passed my driving test, and will have to venture into aberdeen soon, very daunting never been into town while driving before, and its a bit more busy than inverurie, and i was just wondering if anyone knew the best place to park near The Lemon Tree.

Preferably free, or cheap.

Cheers Steve

Is the morrisons car park locked off at night after it closes and what time does it close if it is locked off

I don't think it's locked off. They removed the wee booth from the entrance a while back, so I don't think there's any way to block it off now. If it's at night, I'd be a bit concerned about security, though. You may be able to find a space on King Street if it's not too busy.

If you go along Broad Street on your left beside The Illicit Still is a car park that is free after about 5 or 6 but its hard to get a space in there. If you keep going up Broad Street on your right is a car park that is free after about 5 or 6 and you are assured a space every time. I use it all the time.

No, park in Councillor Hutchinson's space in the St. Nicholas House car park! Not any other councillor, only Hutchinson. It's the only rad thing to do, and you'll be following in some illustrious footsteps (and I don't mean Hutchinson)

Noooo, don't park there or your car will get locked in.

There's not much they can do even if you are parked there - clamping is against the law in Scotland, and any supermarket towing away cars would suffer pretty badly publicity wise. A friend of mine got a 40 "fine" from them - which was fixed to his car windscreen. He ripped it up and hasn't heard a thing two years later, which suggests that they rely on people being stupid enough to pay.

Personally I'd agree with the West North Street car park suggestion, or perhaps even Queen Street if you're early enough to get a space. Morrisons could be worth trying, but I wouldn't expect them to cooperate if your car got smashed in when parked in there. I've never known it to happen, but if you're concerned about that kind of thing...

There's a little car park right behind lemon tree across the road from the police station. Its private I think but the gate is open early on. Anyway, sometimes the gate is closed when you get out but its not locked so you can just lift it and push it open and its fine!

Two big car parks over at the other side of King Street from the Lemon Tree, ie heading down to the Beach, can't remember the name of the street.
