Parking Parking

Marketgate Shopping Centre provides a 127 space short-stay shoppers’ car park

We provide a safe environment for customers, with direct access to the shops. The Centre also offers free parking for motorcyclists.

A “Pay on Foot” system offers customers greater flexibility by simply paying for parking after completing a shopping trip. A “Chip Coin” is issued at the entry barrier which you keep safely with you. When you have finished your shopping simply visit a pay station to pay for your Chip Coin and then insert the Chip Coin at the exit barrier. Customers can now pay for car parking by debit card, credit card & contactless.


*The centre accepts no responsibility for the loss or damage to vehicles, or the contents thereof parked in this carpark.

Both levels of the car park are served by public lifts, providing direct access to the Shopping Centre.
