CITY CENTRE PARKING GUIDE

Parking in Nottingham

Parking in Nottingham couldn't be easier, with plenty of spaces at multi-storey and surface car parks, along with on street and cashless zones around the city centre.

On 2nd April 2024, Nottingham City Council changed off-street and on-street parking tariffs to effectively manage the use of parking in the city and the economic benefit it provides, as well as continuing to complement the Local Transport Plan. For further information please visit here.
