Bolton Topp Way (Duke St)
Once home to luminaries such as Peter Kay, Sir Ian McKellen and Ruth Hamilton, Bolton is one of the largest towns in the UK and attracts around 7.5million visitors each year. If you’re imagining cobbled streets and smoking chimneys, you couldn’t be further from the truth; Bolton is a modern town packed with all the facilities and amenities you might expect from a 21st century destination.
It has maintained much of its original charm, and tourists come to soak up the sights such as the Steam Museum and the wonderfully-named Hall i’ th’ Wood. With excellent shopping and a vibrant arts scene, parking in Bolton can be something of a headache – unless you know the right place to go. The Bolton Topp Way NCP provides over 700 spaces and the facility to pre-book, ensuring that you can park just minutes from the best that Bolton has to offer.
Market Place Shopping Centre Parking
When it comes to retail therapy, you can’t get much more therapeutic than a visit to the Market Place Shopping Centre. Just six minutes’ walk from the Bolton Topp Way NCP, the Market Place Shopping Centre offers much more than high-end shops, independent retailers and boutique stores. In addition, you’ll find a superb range of places to grab a bite to eat, beauty parlours and even two cinemas! If you fancy dining with a difference, be sure to pay a visit to the Vaults – a series of Victorian arches that play host to some superb restaurants and cafés.

The Gallery at St George’s House Parking
If art’s your thing, you won’t have to walk more than four minutes to get from the Bolton Topp Way NCP to the Gallery at St George’s House. Built in 1908, this beautiful, terracotta-coloured building was original the premises of the NS Prescription Pricing Authority. It has since found a new lease of life as a gallery space, showcasing the work of local artists. On your visit, you’ll be introduced to sculptures, photographs, paintings, prints and textile, all created by up-and-coming artists from the area. Admission is free and there’s a café where you can enjoy a light bite while soaking up the contributions to Bolton’s art scene.
