Pay & Display Car Parks

We operate the following car parks. Saver parking permits are available in the majority of our car parks.

Payment can be made by either:

1. Purchasing a ticket from the pay & display machines located throughout the car parks, or

2. Paying by using the Pay By Phone service. Instructions on how to use this service are on each ticket machine and also on signs located around the car parks.

There is the facility on this car park to be able to park a vehicle for up to a maximum of 7 days.

Payment can be made by purchasing a pay & display ticket in the usual way from the car park ticket machines situated within the car park. Insert the correct fee for the number of days parking required and clearly display the pay & display ticket in the vehicle or use the Pay By Phone service.

Motorcycles may park free of charge in the designated motorcycle bays only. If you park within a normal bay then the appropriate payment must be made.
