Information about parking near Stoke-on-Trent Station
Stoke-on-Trent Station is a railway station on the West Coast Main Line (WCML) from London to Glasgow. The WCML has a number of branches and Stoke-on-Trent is on the Manchester Line. As well as the WCML services, the station also serves other major towns and cities in the UK, and a number of local towns in Staffordshire.

Many Hanley roads are old and narrow, and double yellow lines are widespread, which poses the question, “where to park around Stoke-on-Trent Station?”.

On-street parking spaces are few within the six towns and that includes Hanley. The streets near the station are old and narrow; while the houses are generally kept in good condition, front doors open straight onto the street with no front gardens and nowhere for residents to park except on the street. This area is therefore largely subject to Property Owner Permits and not available to passengers who have driven to the station intending to catch a train. A good general rule would be: If you can’t walk to the station from your home, you won’t be able to park on the street while you’re away.
There are three car parks at Stoke-on-Trent Station. They are operated by Virgin Trains and charge £12 per day, Monday to Friday, and £6 on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays:

Apart from the station’s rail services, Hanley bus station has National Express services throughout the country. Local bus services do a good job of linking up all six Potteries towns.
Blue Badge holders park free in on-street parking spaces and council-owned car parks, but in many cases, receive no extension to the fixed maximum stay.
The age of the housing stock and the narrowness of the streets mean that a high percentage of roads in Hanley have double yellow lines. Also, a large number of parking spaces are subject to Property Owner Permits, Business Permits, Trade Exemption Permits and Commuter Permits, and are therefore not available to the general public.
Since early 2019, Stoke-on-Trent Council has been introducing charges for parking on bank holidays, in its car parks and on-street parking bays.
The station itself has good and clearly marked facilities for dropping and collecting passengers. Away from the station, drivers can stop to set down and pick up passengers on double yellow lines only if the passenger has a Blue Badge.
