The Best Alternatives to Shopping Centre Parking

When you’re trying to find a parking space for your Saturday shop, the costs can add up – and not just because you missed all the deals by being late for your Christmas shopping. Parking in some areas can be a real blow to the wallet, so we created this handy guide to help you find the least expensive car parking areas, and avoid the most expensive, all within 15 minutes of the main shopping centres. The costs are for 5 hours of parking giving you ample time for your weekend shopping spree (and possibly a chocolate mocha or two!) We also included the parking cost at the shopping centre themselves.From our research, the largest saving you can make is if you’re planning on visiting The Moor in Sheffield. A five-hour stay at their car park will cost you £9, but if you’re happy to take a short 6-minute walk (if you walk slowly) you can save yourself £8 by only paying £1 at the nearby Science park. This is the cheapest car parking fee we found nearby. (And while you’re there, maybe stop by the Sheffield Hallam University and get some knowledge in with your shopping!) If you’re shopping on a busy day and both of those car parks are full, make sure you avoid Arundul Gate. It might only be an 8-minute walk away, but you’ll be shelling out £17 for the privilege. The most expensive car parks we found were in Bloomsbury, Camden and Kensington which is certainly no surprise. At each Read More…
