Car Parking

Foot passengers using either service are recommended to use the Triangle car park (off Platform Road - see map). It is about a 5 minute walk to Terminal 2.

There is short-term parking in surrounding streets and a large multi-story at WestQuay (overnight parking not-permitted). There is also pay & display parking at the end of Town Quay but to avoid being clamped and heavily fined by the operator please don't use restricted bays.
