Car parks are available at most of our train stations and you can pay for daily parking tickets and car parking season tickets in a number of ways. Parking charges apply every day at train station car parks including public holidays, except on 25 and 26 December or unless stated otherwise.
At busy times (generally before 09:00 Monday to Friday) we recommend that you find a parking space before paying. Marked bays are for car parking season ticket holders only before 09:00 Monday to Friday, but after this time they can be used by anyone.
Parking spaces for Blue Badge holders are available at many of our stations. A valid European Blue Parking Badge must be clearly displayed when you park in a disabled parking space.
Parking charges apply unless stated otherwise. Where there are disabled parking spaces in short stay areas, charges do not apply but you must not park for longer than 20 minutes.
Daily parking tickets
Parking charges can vary at each station and depending on the time and day you park. These include peak, off-peak, Saturday, Sunday, public holiday and weekend pricing for parking.
If you’re going away for a long weekend, make the most of our weekend parking available from the beginning of off-peak hours on Friday until the end of Sunday or Monday if it’s a public holiday.

Car parking season tickets
Some of our stations have limited space and there are waiting lists for car parking season tickets. Call our contact centre or go to your local ticket office to find out if you need to be added to a waiting list.
Automatic Number Plate Registration
As part of our station improvement programme, we’re rolling out Automatic Number Plate Registration (ANPR) across some of car parks. This means you’ll no longer have to display your car parking season ticket in your car windscreen. Use our car parking availability tool on the SWR app to see if your station is listed and then register for ANPR.
