3.    ‘Centre’ and ‘Inner’ Car Parks – locations and charges:

NOTE: parking is free after 6pm; also on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Car Park - Locations:
‘Winchester City Centre Parking Map’ – is available on the Internet –
‘Google’ ‘Winchester access and parking map’. This shows all of the ‘Centre’ and the ‘Inner’ Car Parks. Also shows the one-way system.

The two Car Parks that are the nearest to the Meeting House are:

•    ‘Chesil Multi-storey’ in Chesil Street (No. 7 on the Map). LONG STAY.
This is recommended – as it is ‘long-stay’and more likely to have places than the one in Colebrook Street. (See below).
Charges range from £1.10 up to 1 hour; £3.50 up to 4 hours; £6.00 for 4 hours-plus
To QMH: Cross over pedestrian traffic-lights, to end of Chesil Street at the roundabout; turn left; then the next left is Colebrook Street.

•    ‘Colebrook Street Car Park’ (No. 5 on the Map). SHORT STAY – as this is a ‘central’ car park, note that it is limited to four hours. (Only two other ‘Centre’ car parks (‘The Brooks’ and ‘Middle Brook Street) include stays for ‘over 4 hours’ = £15.00. ‘Tower Street’ and ‘Gladstone Street’ also do so = £8.00)
Charges range from £1.10 up to 1 hour; £4.00 up to 4 hours.
To QMH: leaving car-park at the ‘Exit’, turn left into Colebrook Street; No. 16 is on the right.

4. Parking at QMH:

There is parking for three cars only, usable only by permit to be obtained in advance from the Warden.(see contacts below).

But when meetings are held in St Lawrence's Parish Room (next to the Meeting House) parking is available at the rear of the Parish Room.
