Opened in February 1903, Granton Railway Station was built to accommodate the commute for people working at the nearby Gas Works. Just over 120 years later, Wasps Studios (in partnership with City of Edinburgh Council) has established a brand new hub for the creative industries, nestled within the exciting Granton Waterfront regeneration project.

Granton Station is Wasps’ newest building in Edinburgh, and the first of its kind in the region that focuses on providing space for creative businesses and social/cultural enterprises.

Granton Station features:

  • 24/7 secure building access (not applicable to hot desk members)
  • parking facilities across the road at Morrisons supermarket – £2.50 per day or £45 per month with Euro Car Parks
  • staffed reception during office hours
  • high-speed fibre broadband
  • meeting room for hire
  • dedicated co-working space for freelancers, start-ups and remote workers
  • hot desking areas with flexible memberships
  • gallery and project space
  • cycle parking
  • lockers and shower facility
