Information about parking in and around Birmingham
Driving to and parking in Birmingham
Served by the M5, M42, M6, M40 and more dual carriageways than you could shake a stick at, driving into the heart of Birmingham is a breeze. The centre of the city also benefits from having over 24,000 parking spaces, making Birmingham a particularly driver-friendly city.
Birmingham City Council operate a number of car parks in and around the city centre including a range of multi storey car parks. Charges vary, but as an example the Snow Hill multistorey charges £1.30 for up to an hour or £11.40 per day.
Most of the council operated car parks are open 24 hours but we recommend you check with the individual notice boards just to make sure.
There is also a limited amount of on-street parking in Birmingham. In the centre of town charges apply from 8am and 7.30pm every day, whilst outside the centre these timings are between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.
Birmingham City Council have put together a full list of on-street parking costs, restrictions and hours of operation here.
Private Parking options:
JustPark offer some of the cheapest parking in Birmingham with prices from as little as £2 per day. You can also pre-book your parking with JustPark, making your trip as stress free as possible.
Bank Holiday Parking:
Bank holiday charges apply to many of the car park and multi storeys in Birmingham, although the city council recommend you check with the individual notice boards.
Onstreet parking in central Birmingham (including the Jewellry Quarter) however is free on Bank Holidays and Christmas Day.
There are 144 designated motorcycle parking bays in central Birmingham, with Waterloo Street (B4 6DH) having the most at 22 spots. Motorcycle parking in these designated motorcycle parking bays is free, although a small charge of £1 per day does apply in Dudley Street and Snow Hill multi storey.
Blue Badge holders can park in pay and display parking bays and council operated car parks for free. There is also free parking on yellow lines for a maximum of 3 hours (and so long as there are no loading / unloading restrictions).
