Stratford-on-Avon District Council Car Parks in Stratford-Upon-Avon and across the district

Stratford-on-Avon District Council provides 8 car parks (with over 2,800 parking spaces) within Stratford-upon-Avon town centre and a further 800 spaces in the surrounding towns in the district.

Parking in Stratford-upon-Avon town

Bridgefoot Car Park
Leisure Centre Car Park

There are signs on all approach roads and throughout the town to guide you to the Council's car parks. Please note, charges apply in all of the Council's town centre car parks.

Two of the car parks within Stratford-upon-Avon (Bridgeway Multi-Storey Car Park and the adjacent Bridgeway Surface Car Park) are barrier controlled 'Pay on Foot', which means you take a ticket on entering the car park, keep it with you then pay the appropriate amount at one of the pay stations in the car park before returning to your vehicle.

All of the other Stratford-upon-Avon car parks are 'pay & display,' which means you have to buy a ticket on arrival and display it within your vehicle. The charges apply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Parking in the surrounding towns in the district

The Council also provides car parks in the surrounding towns in the district. These are located in Shipston-on-Stour, Southam, Alcester, Bidford, Henley-in-Arden and Studley. All of these are free with the exception of Telegraph Street car park in Shipston-on-Stour.
