Attraction & event parking in Chester


Chester Cathedral

Chester Cathedral is one of the city’s main tourist attractions, and a fantastic place to learn about Chester’s past. It boasts stunning stained glass windows and lots of fascinating artefacts and monuments. Services and events take place at the cathedral throughout the year. If you want to see some of the country’s most beautiful stained glass windows or simply spend a while in quiet contemplation, it’s easy to park your car in either Pepper Street or Browns Yard NCP car parks. Both are within easy reach of the cathedral, with Chester parking spaces available to pre-book at Pepper Street, making it even more convenient if you’re planning to attend an event and want to be sure of your parking space.


Grosvenor Park

Grosvenor Park covers around 20 acres of land on the banks of the River Dee, right in the centre of the city. This green oasis is criss-crossed by footpaths and has everything from ornamental gardens, to grassy areas and historic sites. The park is a great destination for a day out with the family or an afternoon of fresh air and exercise. In the summer months, Grosvenor Park is home to an open air theatre, the perfect place for a night out on a warm summer evening. If you want to make sure you catch a performance without worrying about where to park, then pre-book your space at NCP’s Pepper Street car park to make your visit to Grosvenor Park even easier.

Like the rest of Chester, the centre has lots of character with historic buildings and period features mixed with contemporary architecture and convenient parking.

Chester Racecourse

Chester Racecourse is the oldest racecourse still in use in England and lies on the banks of the River Dee, just moments from the city centre. If you’re off to the gallops for the day then pre-book your space at NCP’s conveniently located Pepper Street car park, just a stone’s throw from the racecourse. Visitors to the racecourse will find it easy to get in and out of the city on race day, and online pre-booking makes it even easier to guarantee your space.
