When you are planning your visit to Cambridge you may consider driving into the city and using one of the many car-parking facilities made available by Cambridge City Council.

There are five pay on foot multi-storey car parks where you pay at the machine on return to your vehicle.  These car parks are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are located at Park Street, Grafton West, Grafton East, Queen Anne Terrace and the Grand Arcade.

There are also three pay-and-display car parks where you pay for and display a ticket in your windscreen before you leave your vehicle. These car parks are located at Adam And Eve Street. Gwydir Street and Castle Hill.

Please note that there are additional car parks in Cambridge, and that the Cambridge Leisure Park and the Cambridge Train Station car parks are managed by NCP.

One of the simplest ways of visiting Cambridge by car is to use one of the five Park & Ride sites located on the outskirts of the city. All five sites are easily accessible when travelling from any part of the country and are situated at Trumpington Road, Babraham Road, Milton, Madingley Road and Newmarket Road.

You can see each car park on our Car Parks Map, which also includes some other car parks including NCP sites and Cambridgeshire County Council-managed Park and Ride sites.

Cashless Parking in Cambridge

Motorists parking their cars in Cambridge no longer have to hunt for the right cash thanks to the introduction of cashless car parking.

Working together Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council have teamed up to introduce the RingGo cashless mobile phone parking payment service from 1 July.

Now, customers can pay for parking by credit or debit card over the phone, rather than with cash at a payment machine. Cashless parking works in all parking on the street and all pay and display car parks, but it doesn’t operate in the main multi-storey car parks.

Anyone who has an iPhone, Android Blackberry 10, Windows or Firefox smartphone can download the RingGo app while those who don’t have a smartphone can call the standard rate telephone number which is shown on signs on the payment machines, at the time they want to park.

Payments can also be made by text message or online at www.myRingGo.co.uk where there is more information about how the scheme works.

Customers using the service for the first time will be asked for information about their vehicle, the five digit location code shown on the signs which identify the car park that they are in and details of their payment card.
