FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is often on-road parking on streets around the hospital at weekends but please take care to read the parking restriction signs carefully. Most of them are ‘Monday – Friday’ restrictions but there are some that are ‘Residents Only’ parking bays. Car Park C on Palatine Road and Car Park D on Wilmslow Road both have a £1.50 flat charge.
