A new car parking payment system for Jodrell Bank
Wednesday 10th October 2018 will see the launch of a new car parking charge for visitors to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre
How will it work?
1. Collect your parking ticket at the barrier as you enter the site.
2. Visit the welcome desk, café, or gift shop to pay for your parking and validate your ticket.
3. Keep hold of your validated ticket and present it at the barrier as you leave.
How much will it cost?
We’ve been sure to make the system as simple as possible with just one charge of £4 per vehicle.
There are no time restrictions for parking so you can stay as long as you wish.
Coaches that visit as part of a pre-arranged group or school trip can claim free parking when they book in advance.
Why is this happening?
Here at Jodrell Bank, we work hard to protect, share and celebrate this internationally significant site. The Discovery Centre operates as a social enterprise with a clear mission and charitable objectives.
When you pay for your car parking you’re making a direct contribution to our work. Whether it’s children’s science shows, school workshops, exhibitions and events, or our exciting new First Light project, your support goes towards keeping Jodrell Bank a great place to visit for everyone.
