Car Parking

With all-day parking available at just £6.00 a day, our car park is great value for 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  – 6 am is £2.00.

We have over 1,000 spaces, including 43 blue badge holder spaces and 22 family parking bays with direct access to 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, head to one of the pay machines, enter your registration number, and pay the amount due 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. They will validate your parking in the cinema as usual—you will need your car registration.

Smart park by pre-booking your parking online
