Parking in Portsmouth
If you're looking for parking in Portsmouth there are two main parking options: the Park and Ride scheme or by using the various car parks dotted throughout the city.
Portsmouth Park and Ride is situated just off the M275 on the approach to the city centre. This allows its users to get into town quickly and easily, without having to worry about navigating through traffic. Buses then stop at Charles Dickens, the city centre, The Hard Interchange, Trafalgar Gate and Portsmouth International Port. The cost is £4 per day and you can use the buses as many times as you like during the day. All buses come with free WiFi.
That's not all, as park and ride customers don't just get the option of taking the bus. Instead, you can take one of the bikes at a hire cost of £5 for one-off users or £2.50 for frequent users. These bikes are permitted on park and ride buses.
The opening times are:
Monday - Friday 6:30 to 22:15 (20:00 during the winter)
Saturday 7:30 to 20:00
Sunday 8:30 to 18:45
If you want to bring your car into the city there are a number of car parks on offer, many of which are part of the Park Mark safer parking scheme. Below are just some of the main car parks available.
- Portsmouth City Council car parks
- Gunwharf Quays parking
- Cascades Shopping Centre and City Centre parking

Remember to check of any big events taking place before you travel as this can impact traffic across the city. Portsmouth hosts large events throughout the year which attract visitors from all over - as well as our regular traffic for the ferry ports, football club, Gunwharf Quays and city centre. If there is a large event on when you plan to travel, consider the alternatives like trains, buses or the Park & Ride scheme.
