Car parking

Get details and prices for car parks at stations across Britain

Car parks are available at most of our stations, offering daily parking and parking season tickets for commuters.

Parking charges apply at train station car parks and apply every day including public holidays unless stated otherwise. Charges do not apply on 25 or 26 December.

You can save money if you use the train station car park regularly or you’re leaving your car while enjoying a weekend away.

Daily parking

Parking charges can vary depending on time, with peak and off-peak pricing and options for public holidays.

Weekend Special

Weekend Special parking is available from 12:00 on Friday (or from the beginning of off-peak hours if this is earlier) and valid until the end of Sunday (plus Monday if it is a public holiday).

Parking season tickets

Monthly and annual parking season tickets are available at the station ticket office, or through our Customer Service Centre when you renew your train ticket.

Because of limited space, some stations have waiting lists for new parking season tickets.

How to pay

You can pay for your parking in a number of ways. At busy times (generally before 09:00 Monday to Friday) we recommend that you find a parking space first.

Self-service tickets

Daily and weekly car park tickets are available from ticket vending machines.

Ticket office

You can buy monthly or longer car parking season tickets at the station ticket office.

Pay by mobile

At South Western Railway stations you can also pay for your parking through your phone using an app called RingGo. The great thing about this is you get text messages to tell you when your parking is running out and can extend your stay without returning to your car. Find out more and get the app from the RingGo website.

Disabled parking

Parking spaces for disabled people are available at many stations. You must display a valid European Blue Parking Badge. Parking charges apply unless stated otherwise. Where Blue Badge spaces are located in short stay areas, charges do not apply but you must not park for longer than 20 minutes even with a Blue Badge.
