Enjoy free parking all day, every day*

Free parking, all day, every day!

Metrocentre has 6 car parks and almost 10,000 parking spaces available including disabled bays. Disabled parking is available at all of our locations excluding external Blue Mall. 

The best part is that it's free (with no time restrictions) to park in our main, colour-zoned car parks during centre opening hours. Passenger lifts and escalators give easy access from each car park directly to the shopping centre.

*Please note that there are parking restrictions that apply at Metro Retail Park and MetrOasis with a 4 hour time limit. This means you can park in Metro Retail Park and MetrOasis for a maximum stay of four hours.
