Please remain in your car and wait for one of our customer service assistant to greet you and give you a parking ticket. Keep this safe as you’ll need it to leave the car park. Please make sure you have your booking confirmation when you arrive, the car park staff will then direct you into the parking area on the gravel patch.

    It’s a good idea to have your booking to hand.
