Latest Cardinal Park parking reviews
Very easy to find, especially using the photos. Plenty of space and brilliant location for shopping, eating and it was over the road from the theatre which was perfect for us. Highly recommendedCathy
Great location and rate! The only problem is that the parking is usually full. Happened with me twice and I managed to park after someone vacated. Will be great if the booking doesn't go through when the parking isn't available.Gaurav
Easy to find. So close to station. Fantastic findSharon
Easy to find and a perfect location if you’re parking for the train stationHelen
A very tight squeeze through the gate and it wasn't too clear where to park. However, I went I where I thought I was supposed to go, and happy to say i was in the right spot. The staff were very helpful in the pub and they do a cracking meal! Ideal for the Theatre as its just across the road. I will definitely use the space again. Very happy overall. Recommended:)Karen
Easy to find when coming into Ipswich from the A12. Very convenient for the town centre and for Ipswich Town FC at Portland Road. Bit of a queue to get out onto the road after the match but no real problem. Would definitely use it again for my next visit to Ipswich.David
Security guard on duty. Ideal place to park if you are going to a match at Ipswich Town. The pub is also the designated away fans venue by the Police.David
Ideal for visit to Portman Road, easy to find and a quick exit after gameShaun
Quick easy to book and cheaper than the station car park.Vicki
