Car parks and other places to park
To help decide on the most suitable place to park, we have provided a city centre parking map. You can access this from the ‘Downloads’ tab on this page. In addition, our directory of car parks contains information on the number of spaces as well as postcodes for satellite navigation devices.
If you are a motorcyclist, please refer to our city centre map of motorcycle parking bays.
If you are a cyclist, please see our city centre map of cycle parking sites and read our cycle parking information sheet that provides useful information on cycle parking facilities including Cycle Point.
