Information about Parking in Newcastle
Newcastle is a foodie and cultural hotspot, with plenty of buzzing restaurants, concert halls and art galleries. Newcastle also has heaps of great nightlife to offer, whether you’re up for dressing up or down for a hard dance.
Despite Newcastle being a popular destination with plenty on offer, the parking solutions aren’t as attractive. Much of the on-street parking throughout the city is restricted to residents' parking zones, making it particularly difficult for city centre commuters and visitors to find reasonably priced parking in Newcastle to suit their needs.
Most car parks in Newcastle tend to be on the pricey side, often making it unaffordable for those who have to drive to and from the city every day.
…this is where we come in.

Latest Newcastle parking reviews
Easy to locate. Reasonable walk to Northumbria Uni and City . Really positive communications with owner too. Recommend this space.Jayne
Quite easy to find with sat nav but a bit confusing to enter with a code that changed 3 times since the space was booked had email on morning but had to ring the reception as code wasnt right one. very narrow to get down into carpark which is under premier suites hotel and was a bit confused trying to walk out once parked had to walk back up ramp and enter code to get out. on return had to ring reception again using number on email carpark is very secure tho so would use againJulie
Did call owner before arrival but no answer so just parked - all fine when returned to car so presume owner was happy.Rebecca
Easy once found. Super convenient and easy walk to metro station. Highly recommend and will be booking again soon.Elliot
Great car park for us as hotel was just down the street to the right and Northumberland Street and Eldon Square was just a short walk to the left. Car park is a bit dilapidated and water was pouring in in places from the rain but for £3.50 for 24hrs i wasn't complaining . I would use it again with no worries .Christine
Car park was a little tight so getting out was a challenge.. lucky my insignia has sensors and made it a little easier... however plenty of room and good value considering the locality of the arena. Will be sure to book again on my next visit. ThanksDavid
Good location, easy to find. Around 30-35 minute walk away from the stadium of light. Did not get stuck in traffic on the way out like most people who had left the stadium. Would recommend.Ellie
This was brilliant we walked in to the Stadium of light with ease to see the Spice Girls, we missed all the traffic by walking back, and left without any traffic jams, I will definitely use this again for any future gigs.Lynne
