Have your Registration Number Ready:
Note that your car registration number is an important piece of information as entry to some of the car parks is governed by number plate recognition. Without the correct car registration number, this can delay entry into the car park. For block parking and valet parking, the car registration number is important for the car park staff when identifying your car in preparation to meet you on the terminal forecourt or to have your car in the right position for collection when you return.
There are disabled bays in all car parks which are clearly marked and close to bus stops. If you need wheelchair access, nearly all buses are low-loading and have space to accommodate chairs. Information about disabled parking for individual car parks can be found by clicking on the car park name on the parking product options page on the website f
