To help us maintain social distancing, there is currently a one-way system in place in our car park for pedestrians.

The car park stairwell within the mall is temporarily to be used to go down only.

When shoppers are leaving the centre, they should pay for parking at the First Floor (Food Court) pay machines or those located in the car park on this level.

Shoppers can then exit the centre via the First Floor car park and follow signage to the Marks & Spencer stairwell. From here, shoppers can access car park levels 2-5 via the stairs or lift, which are both ‘up’ only.

New signage is in place to help everyone to follow this guidance.

We ask that customers please give lift priority to those most in need.

The car park’s tariffs are:

  • Up to 2 hours: £2.80
  • 2-3 hours: £4.00
  • 3-4 hours: £5.00
  • 4-5 hours: £6.00

We are proud that our car park has been issued the Park Mark, an award given by the Police for achieving the standards of the Safer Parking Scheme, designed to reduce crime in car parks.

The nearest car parks for accessible vehicles over 2m are St Andrew St/Whimple Street, Guildhall and North Hill.
