Latest Newport parking reviews
Superb. Easy to do. Lots of spaces. No hassle. Good value. Will do this again. Turns on the ramps were a bit tight, but otherwise a good car park.Ann

Quick to book online and perfect location and priceNicki
Fantastic as I needed to park for several hours, it took all the worry away for me, was very reasonable & I will definitely use them again now my Husband found it for me ThankyouMadeleine
Great space, reasonable cost when booked in advance.Jenny
Easy parking, close to High Street, Parked daily for a few weeks while staying in the area and on a as need basis over the last year, always found a space.Jenny
Very easy to use. So convenient, makes life much easier without the stress.Jo
It’s in a good location. Never had a problem getting a space - just find one, park and away you go - ignore the signs showing parking T’s & C’s, they don’t apply to you! Top Tip - head up 2 floors for diagonal parking spaces, which will save your paint work! Talking of which, some of the turns are a bit tight, so take it slow!Noel
on first visit I saw an enterance sign which turned out to be for pedestrians only, car park enterance was other side of the same building and could be clearly indicated but the actually car park is large and their is an undercover area to park in which as I am parking all day is ideal in hot weather. I have been using the car park twice weelky since my first visit and always had multiple spaces to choose fromJane
I would definitely recommend this parking, there is always space and it is very easy to book online no more searching for the right change and very reasonable rates.Barbara
