We regret that there is no daytime parking available on our Lord Mayors Walk site except for visitors who hold a disabled badge. After 5pm, visitors to Foss sports hall may park on site in marked bays.

There is a turning area provided for coaches (to allow drop-offs) adjacent to the Skell building, but no parking provision.

We recommend that visitors to Foss sports hall use the pay and display car/coach park at Union Terrace on Clarence Street or the pay and display car park at Monk Bar on St John Street.
