Getting to Portsmouth Guildhall

There is no accessible parking available directly at the Guildhall.

Blue Badge holders are exempt from pay and display charges in Portsmouth City Council owned car parks – just display your badge. This is not the case with NCP owned car parks or the Isambard Brunel Multi Storey car park.

Customers can be dropped off outside the building, along King Henry 1st Street.


Isambard Brunel Multi Storey Car Park has 460 spaces and is 200m from Portsmouth Guildhall.

When attending a show with us you can purchase an ‘exit ticket’ for this car park, either at the point of booking or on the day of the show.

Your pre-paid QR code/confirmation is NOT your exit ticket. Please collect this from the box office in exchange for your entry ticket. Upon entry at the Isambard Brunel Multi-Storey car park in Alec Rose Lane, Portsmouth, PO1 2BX the driver must take the entry ticket at the barrier. Upon exit, the driver must insert the ‘Exit’ ticket (collected from the box office in exchange for entry ticket) in place of the ticket taken at the barrier. The ticket costs £4.50 and is valid for 6 hours from 6pm seven days a week. This ticket may be purchased in advance or on when visiting a show having already parked in the car park.
