There are a number of off-street parking options throughout Norwich, with several private and council-operated car parks in the city centre offering convenient and affordable parking.
Rose Lane multi-storey car park (Mountergate, NR1 1PY) is a large off-street car park operated by Norwich City Council, perfectly located between Norwich city centre and Norwich train station. It operates 24 hours a day, Monday-Sunday, and offers a very reasonable hourly and daily rate.
Another council car park worth considering is Chantry car park (The Chantry, NR2 1RG) on the opposite side of the city centre. Also running 24 hours a day, Monday-Sunday, this location provides great access to the city centre and Norwich Theatre Royal in particular. However, there is a limited amount of spaces – and whilst still cheaper than most, its location comes at the cost of a slightly higher rate than some of the other council-operated car parks.
There are 5 park and ride locations surrounding Norwich in all directions, providing a further alternative for parking off-street – and you’ll need only pay a small total fare for a day’s parking and public transport into the city.

This historical might is evidenced by the Norman-era Norwich Castle taking centre-stage in the heart of the city – a glorious sight nestled in amongst an ever-growing modern metropolis.
