“ A signpost at the turn off into your car park at the junction with Viscount Road would be helpful. Otherwise extremely convenient and quick to use when booked and paid online. ” - Rita Howlett

The car park has automatic number plate recognition, so we'll ask you for your car registration number when you book. The machine at the entry barrier will read your number plate and give you a ticket with your booking reference and registration number on. Keep this ticket safe, as you'll need it when you come back. Then just drive in and park.
If the machine doesn't give you a ticket, you'll need to press the help button to speak to the operator. You'll be asked to confirm your details, and then you'll be let in. You should have a copy of your booking confirmation with you.
Just drive to the barrier and put your ticket in the slot. The barrier will lift to let you out. If it doesn't, or if you don't have a ticket, just press the help button. You'll be asked for your booking reference so you should have a copy of your booking confirmation with you.
The car park is protected by CCTV, entry and exit barriers, a fence and lighting and 24-hour patrols. It holds the Park Mark, a national security award for car parks accredited by the police.
Express Park is suitable for disabled customers as no transfers are needed.
Due to the building of a carriageway, the M1 junction closest to the airport and the A453 will be closed between 20:00 and 06:00. An 11-mile diversion will be in place and will be signposted, however anyone using the route should allow an extra half hour for their journey.
There is no height limit.
Although the car park isn't manned, apart from the security patrols, you can speak to a member of staff 24 hours a day using the intercoms on the entry and exit barriers and the payment machines.
