Parking at Vangarde Shopping Park

Vangarde Shopping Park provides free parking for over 1,300 cars.

To help you park more easily, please note the signs throughout the car park and remember the following restrictions:

  • Please note the electronic signage at all our entrances as you drive into the shopping park, and note your expiry time.
  • Parking at Vangarde Shopping Park is for visitors to the shopping park only.
  • There is a maximum stay of 4 hours between 9am and 6pm.
  • On match days this will reduce to a maximum stay of 2 hours between 9am – 6pm. (please see the match day parking page for more information). There will be signage out around the shopping park to let you know that ‘today is a match day’. This includes A Boards all along the walkways and banners within the car park too.
  • Customers can extend their parking up to a maximum of 6 hours by producing a receipt from one of the stores / cafe’s here on the shopping park.
  • To obtain a parking validation voucher, please just come along to the Management Suite (located next door to Prezzo) or speak to a member of the customer service team out on the shopping park. You will need to show proof of purchase obtained here on the shopping park and a voucher will then be issued. Parking is then validated by scanning the voucher and inputting your vehicle registration at one of the machines located along the main walkway (outside M&S, NEXT and John Lewis). Alternatively, you can also validate by adding your registration via a tablet which the customer service team will have access to within the Management Suite.
  • Please park in the marked bays only.
  • Disabled spaces are provided for blue badge holders who are shopping with us.
  • Blue badge holders are exempt from the 4 hour (and 2 hours on match days) parking restrictions – If you are a blue badge holder, please ensure you visit the Management Suite (located next to Prezzo) to validate your parking so that you do not receive a parking charge notice. You can do this either on arrival or when you are about to leave the shopping park – due to the location of our office, you can park up outside and come into the office, or alternatively please call us when you are outside on 07715 216011 and we can come to you. These exemptions only apply if you are shopping with us here at Vangarde Shopping Park. Please note that should you wish to park up here on the shopping park and use any facilities elsewhere, a minimum spend would still required from one of the outlets on the shopping park to extend your parking.
  • Please do not park on double yellow lines, roadways or footpath.
  • Failure to meet these regulations may result in a Parking Charge Notice.
