At the roundabout on the A658, near the airport, take the third exit if you are travelling north, and the first exit if you are travelling south, onto Whitehouse Lane. Take the second exit at the next roundabout. Take the first right after the Travelodge and follow signs for the Long Stay car park. You can park in either Long Stay 1 or Long Stay 2.

Give yourself at least 20 minutes to park and get to the airport.


Arrival procedure

On arrival, please pull up to the car park's entrance barrier. Your registration will be recognised and the barrier will lift to let you in.

If your car registration is not recognised for some reason, please hold the barcode in the located top right of your booking confirmation just below the reader. When your barcode has been successfully scanned, the scanner will beep to confirm and the barrier will rise.

If you need any assistance, please press the call button which can be found on all entry or exit barriers at the car park.

Once you’ve parked, please follow signs to catch the car park's bus to the terminal.


Return procedure

On your return, please catch the bus to the car park from where it dropped you off. You will find your car where you left it. Follow the signs to the exit. As you approach the barrier, your car registration plate will be recognised and the barrier will lift.

If your car registration is not recognised, please hold the barcode located in the top right of your booking confirmation just below the reader. When your barcode has been successfully scanned, the scanner will beep to confirm, the barrier will rise and you will be allowed to exit.



The car park has regular patrols, CCTV, entry and exit barriers, a fence and floodlighting at night. The car park has also been awarded the Park Mark, a national security award for car parks accredited by the police.

LBA Car Watch reviews

Our average review score for LBA Car Watch parking is 4.3 from 34 reviews.

"It did surprise us that our 12 noon arrival booking appeared on the confirmation as 12 pm ie. midnight. This meant that it was necessary to ring to check that we really were booked in for 12 noon. Apologies were forthcoming and another confirmation sent - again with 12 pm !! When the day arrived all went very smoothly but I remain surprised."

"Car park easy to find, directions very helpful, as were the entry instructions. Transfer bus arrived in 3 minutes, pleasant driver.
Didn't have long to wait for the transfer bus on my return, again pleasant courteous driver who gave passengers plenty of time to collect their luggage and get off the coach.

HOWEVER... perhaps you could advise customers to allow plenty of time on their return to get back to their vehicle when inputting their expected exit time? I got caught out by this, inputting an exit time of 2pm, thinking this gave me enough time after landing at the airport, but was 5 minutes late arriving at the exit barrier. The machine asked for an excess charge of 75p, not a lot of money, granted, but having paid £35 for the week, I would have thought there could have been a few minutes grace period built in?
Luckily, the man that I contacted on the buzzer was very understanding, and his colleague opened the barrier for me, free of charge.
Apart from that blip, good experience, and would recommend your company. Many thanks."
