The Isambard Brunel Car Park, The Park and Ride.

Recommended options are The Isambard Brunel Car Park and Portsmouth Park and Ride

Please note there is very limited on-street parking outside the Guildhall.

We do however have the Isambard Brunel Multi-storey car park only 200 metres from the Guildhall in Alec Rose Lane, PO1 2BX.

Anyone attending a show at the Guildhall may purchase an ‘exit’ ticket for the Isambard Brunel Multi-storey car park, in exchange for the ticket taken at the barrier, valid from 6pm until midnight on the day of the show you are attending. These are only £4.50 and can be purchased in advance or when visiting the venue. ‘Exit’ tickets may be collected during box office opening hours and before the start of the show.

Tickets may also be purchased online and collected at the Box Office, however tickets purchased online incur a booking fee, therefore we strongly advise that you purchase your ticket in person at the Box Office.

The Isambard Brunel Multi-storey car park is located at Alec Rose Lane, PO1 2BX and has 460 spaces.

Alternatively, you may pay by cash, credit or debit card using one of the pay and display ticket machines.

Looking to save some money on your city centre parking? The council parking office is offering a Park-it, pay as you go card. The £80 top-up card gives you £220 of credit, and makes parking just £3.09 per day (for 8 hours). That's the equivalent of nearly 26 days worth of parking, and you'll never have to scrabble for change again. The car park is central, well lit and has 24 hour CCTV in action.

Disabled Access Guide for Isambard Brunel Multi Storey Car Park

Disabled Badge holder parking information

Please note that Blue Badge holders are exempt from pay and display charges in Portsmouth City Council owned car parks, you only have to display your badge. This is not the case in NCP owned car parks. Please note that this does NOT include the Isambard Brunel Multi-Storey car park as you have to get a ticket in order to gain access. Portsmouth City Council suggests Guildhall Walk car park for Blue Badge holders. There is space to drop off outside the Guildhall for those who find it hard to walk long distances.

  • No disabled parking in Exchange Road (behind New Theatre Royal) after 6.00pm.
  • In Guildhall Walk Car Park, PO1 2BX (behind Starbucks) there are some disabled parking bays but blue badge holders can park anywhere.
