Latest Matlock Bath parking reviews
Great location, less than 5 minute walk to Hall Leys Park/first set of shops and reasonable price. The only thing I think could be made clearer is that the main car park is at the back of the club, which is a narrow-ish driveway on the left hand side, as it wasn't so obvious on first arriving. However I would definitely recommend parking here.Rebecca
Easy to find, nice and wide (enough to open the doors all the way out on both sides) and long enough for the car to be completely covered. On the main road so could be difficult to get in and out during rush hour, but drivers were friendly and let us in/out very quickly.Gareth
