Getting to Goldenacre Bowling Club, 36A Warriston Gardens, EH3 5NE
Due to renovations at our usual venue for Branch Meetings, for the foreseeable future we will be holding these at the bowling club. This is a very comfortable, bright venue with ample parking space. Warriston Gardens runs off Inverleith Row with the bowling club located at the far end via a signed driveway on the right. The Gardens run the length of George Heriots’ Sports Grounds. The distance once turning in from Inverleith Row is 0.2 miles – a good 5 minute walk.

If coming by bus, nos. 23, 27 and 8 run along Inverleith Row with a stop close to Warriston Gardens. Click Map of Goldenacre Bowling Club for a map.
The phone number of the Club is 0131 552 4206.
