If you are picking up or dropping off at the cruise and ferry terminal then there are 20 minute parking bays directly outside the terminal for this purpose. If you are not taking your car on the ferry, then there is a long stay multi-storey car park at the terminal. Our four-storey car park is open 24 hours a day and is just minutes’ walk from the main ferry terminal.

The maximum vehicle height in our car park is 2.1 metres.

Alternatively you may simply be taking advantage of a day trip crossing and enjoy the day's freedom without driving so make the most of the APCOA booking system direct from this page.

Our car park is Park Mark accredited. A Park Mark is awarded to parking facilities that have met the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by the Police. These requirements mean the parking operator has put in place measures that help to deter criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, thereby doing everything they can to prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime in their parking facility.

For customers, using a Park Mark, Safer Parking facility it means that the area has been vetted by the police and has measures in place to create a safer environment, including:

  • Quality management
  • Appropriate lighting
  • Effective surveillance
  • Clean environment

Please note that ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) cameras are now in operation, and that this is a ‘barrier-less’ car park. Payment for parking must be paid upon arrival at the car park (not at exit) using either the pay machines located on the ground floor or via the APCOA connect mobile app.

Charges are as follows:

Up to 1 hour: £4.00

Up to 3 hours: £6.00

Up to 5 hours: £8.00

Up to 24 hours: £13.00

Over 24 hours: £13.00 per day
