Riverside car park

This small car park is at the corner of Riverside and Abbey Road. It’s a 15 or 20-minute walk from the city centre.

Cash and card payments are not accepted in this car park – you must pay by phone with JustPark.

We have introduced a special three month parking deal to support the early stages of recovery of city centre shops, the market and newly reopening food and drink businesses. This will be reviewed monthly.
