Some additional information about parking in norwich station, to cater to all your parking needs
There are some on-street parking spaces within easy walking distance of the station, including four pay-and-display spaces at Recorder Road just over the River Wensum. Some free spaces can be found at Lower Clarence Road or Thorpe Road, though the latter has a 30-minute restriction during peak hours.
Stracey Road has a mixture of free on-street parking and permit parking, and is about six or seven minutes away from the station by foot. The time limit for most of these on-street spaces is two hours, so they’re adequate for meeting passengers or buying tickets, etc. Anyone who is catching a train should opt for off-street parking instead.

At the station itself, a flat all-day rate of £11.20 is reasonable if you need the sheer convenience, but there’s cheaper parking nearby. The Rose Lane multi-storey or RCP uncovered parking in Mountergate are both cheaper and more flexible on length of stay. All-day parking at RCP Lower Clarence Road, about 10 minutes away, is £7 only for cars.
For great parking deals that make trips away by train even more affordable, you can book privately allocated spaces and driveways via JustPark, as well as regular on-street spots and car park spaces.
