Car Parking

With all day parking at just £5.00 on the day, our car park is great value for both shoppers and people working in Wakefield city centre.

Visitors can park for just 50p all day on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Overnight car parking from midnight  – 6am is £2.00.

We have over 1,000 spaces, including 43 blue badge holder spaces and 22 family parking bays all with direct access into the centre.

Our car park is a ticketless car parking system where your number plate is automatically captured & recognised at the entrance barrier.

When you are ready to leave, simply head over to one of the pay machines, enter your registration number, and pay the amount due either with a card or cash.

For your reassurance, please note:

???? The entrance barriers remain, so you are only allowed in the car park if there is space.
???? Our system does not generate parking tickets, so there will be no unexpected fines in the post. You only pay if there is space in the car park and you manage to park.
???? FREE parking at Reel cinema will continue and they will validate your parking in the cinema as normal – you will need your car registration.
