Our 420 space short stay Car Park is completely integrated with the main shopping complex via the Central Rotunda.

With both lift and stair access, using the centre could not be simpler or safer – whatever the weather.

On a safety note the park has won the coveted government backed secure parks award every year since it started in 1994. Well lit and benefiting from both security cameras and foot patrols the park offers you real peace of mind for both your vehicle and your personal safety.

Finding the park is also simple with signposts on just about every main approach to the town just follow the "Buttermarket" or "Shopmobility" signs and drive in, a height limit of 6' 8" will allow pretty well all passenger vehicles easy parking.
