To support the safety of our car park users during the COVID-19 pandemic we will only be accepting payments at ticket machines or payments via RingGo, which can be done online, by app or by phone.
We partner with award-winning cashless parking provider RingGo to offer market leading pay by phone, and cashless parking services at our car parks.
With more and more people choosing to pay by card, it is essential that car parks have alternative payment options available. We provide cashless parking solutions that allow customers to pay by telephone, online, text or via a smartphone app ensuring a quick and easy parking experience.
Cashless Parking Payment Options
For easy and convenient payment you can use your bank card to pay for your car parking by using one of our pay-and-display machines located in our car parks. Use either contactless or chip-and-pin to pay.
Call the dedicated RingGo car parking payments line to pay for your car parking. All you need to do is:
1.) Dial 020 3046 0010 and follow the instructions, stating your vehicle registration number, make & colour 2.) Provide the location code for the car park 3.) Choose all-day parking or just the hours you need to park there 4.) Enter your payment card details. Easy right?
Send a simple text message to arrange your parking. Simply find the car park location code, let us know how long you’ll be parking there, and then pay for your stay.
The RingGo text to park service requires you to be previously registered with RingGo and have added the vehicle you wish to park to your account.
You will receive a text confirming whether or not you have successfully parked. Text message fees may vary by parking location.
