Plan Your Visit - Parking
Our top tips for the best parking spots in town
If you’re driving into Newbury, it’s best to plan ahead and know where you’re going to park before you set out on your journey. There are plenty of options for parking in the town centre itself or, if you enjoy a good stroll, there are car parks slightly further out which will enable you to take in some of Newbury’s sights on your way to the shops or your lunch date.


Goldwell Park Car Park

Our top pick - just 650m from Northbrook Street, the town centre's main shopping street, Goldwell Park Car Park offers a full day's parking for just £2. You can even take the scenic route into town by crossing over the Monkey Bridge and strolling along the canal to West Mills. And whilst you're in Goldwell Park, you can read up on some fascinating local history thanks to an array of handy information boards.

Newbury FC Car Park

Another great pick only 650m from the town centre, Newbury Football Club Car Park also offers a full day's parking for £2. The direct route into town takes you along the Kennet & Avon Canal, past beautiful Victoria Park, and out into the heart of Northbrook Street. Remember to take some treats to feed the ducks and swans along the way, and look out for the Teashop by the Canal, which is well worth a visit!

Northcroft Leisure Centre

Yet another great choice just 650m from the town centre, Northcroft Leisure Centre Car Park offers free parking for the first three hours (ticket must be displayed) and a very reasonable rate of £5 for the rest of the day. If you're parking here, make sure you check out the magical weir on the other side of Northcroft Park, and grab a tasty burrito from Fusion Deli as you walk along Northcroft Lane into town.


Dedicated Blue Badge spaces are available in the following car parks in Newbury town centre. Free Blue Badge parking is also available in the on-street areas where parking charges apply; see this useful article from West Berkshire Council for further information.
