Need to know

Drive to the barrier where your number plate will be recognised and you'll be given a ticket. The entry barrier will lift automatically, so you can drive in and park in any space - keep hold of your keys while you're away.

From the car park it's a 3-minute walk to the terminal.

On your return walk back to the car park from the terminal. Collect your car and drive to the exit barrier. Insert your ticket into the machine and the barrier will lift automatically.


We recommend taking a look at the Short Stay 1 car park, where there are designated Blue Badge bays available on a first come, first served basis.


The car park has been awarded the Park Mark and is secured by:

  • CCTV
  • Fencing
  • Regular staff patrols
  • Entry and exit barriers

The small print

Early or late? The car park offers a 6 hour grace period at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £20 per day, which is subject to change.

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, just show it on your mobile device.

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).
