easy to find and only a 5 minute walk to Northumberland street...and it was empty! Not sure if I should be posting about how good it was as this is a real hidden gem for parking on evenings and weekends in Newcastle!Stephen
The app was easy to use. This parking space was easy to find and the access code was correct. We didn’t know we needed a different code to get back out of the gates but spoke to a lady on the intercom who kindly helped us out. I would definitely park here again.JO
