Latest Aston University parking reviews
Easy to find, clean and tidy and felt secure. Entrance and exit are a tight for a bigger carMark
Get ticket on entry. Leaving, Go to exit barrier and press help button. We waited several minutes to be answered and caused a build up of cars behind us. Couldn't find our booking (as booking ID is not the same as access code, which we didn't have) after another 5 minutes he raised the barrier, seemingly using our reg plate as confirmation? Would use again as its a lot cheaper and a perfect location.Julie

Couldn’t believe how easy this was. Super safe car park too and easy to find.Molly ann
A bit difficult to find at first but ok. Very narrow once inside and not really a lot of room to swing open your doors but other than that the most pleasing aspect was it is super secure so over all I'd give it a 7 out of 10Paul
