Car Parking

** Parking is currently free for up to 3 hours Monday to Saturday and free all day on Sundays. We will continue to monitor car park usage and provide further updates on parking tariffs as required **

Parking's easy at EK. We've got over 2,800 parking spaces, spread across four car parks - so you'll be able to find somewhere to park that's handy for you. Our car parks are part of the Safer Parking Scheme and we're also DPA accredited

Car Parks 1, 2 & 3 (Centre West, Plaza and The Hub) all have a pay-on-foot payment system. You'll collect a yellow token at the barrier when you come into the car park. Keep your token with you, and use it to pay for your parking at one of the pay machines in the relevant car park before returning to your car. 

Strict hygiene rules will be in place with hand sanitiser at all pay stations and parking tokens on a ‘one use’ cycle, meaning no token will be handled by more than one person before it is sanitised.

Car Park 4 (Princes Mall) and also the Ice Rink Car Park are operated by vehicle recognition and are pre-pay car parks. Your car registration is automatically logged by CCTV when you enter and exit the car park. You should visit a pay machine when you enter the car park. There are two pay machines situated within Car Park 4 (outside the shopping centre) and also a pay machine located at the Ice Rink Car Park. 

You'll find more information about each car park below, including postcodes for satnav, tariffs and opening hours. Full terms and conditions are displayed on signage throughout the car parks.
