    Parking facilities are very restricted and are not normally available for visitors to Land Economy.

    For short stays the City Centre Car Parks offer great convenience, but for longer visits there are five world class Park & Ride sites located on the outskirts of the City that provide free parking and a swift and frequent bus ride to the City Centre.

    Short-term parking for non-guests is also available at the Doubletree Hilton Hotelnearby. 

    Mon-Fri entry from 07.00-14.00 = £3.00ph and from 14.00-07.00 = £2.50pm.  Weekends are also £2.50ph.  You will need to get a ticket from the machine on entry to the car park and this must be retained and validated at the pay station before exiting the car park.  Please note payment is by credit/debit card only.

  • Arriving by Bicycle

    If you drive/Park & Ride or travel into the city via public transport you may want to cycle to CRERC.  Extensive cycle routes and dedicated cycle lanes criss-cross the city and cycle parking is provided behind Land Economy.  Access is via a brick archway adjacent to the Land Economy building.  Cycle racks are available but do remember to bring your own lock and be careful not to attach your cycle to anyone else’s.  Also be aware of cycle security – you park at your own risk.
