Charges

An ‘off-peak’ tariff applies through the day unless you arrive during the ‘peak-time’ tariff hours. It’s free to park here in the evening and overnight.

If your stay extends across more than one tariff’s hours​, the applicable tariffs for your stay will be added together. The cost of your ticket will reflect the days, time and number of hours you park for. The payment machine will calculate the price when you leave.

If you lose your ticket, we will charge you from 8am on the day you entered the car park.
