Some additional information about parking in walsgrave hospitals nhs trust, to cater to all your parking needs
There are no on-street parking spaces in the grounds of the hospital, and many of the streets nearby, (though by no means all), have double yellow lines preventing parking at any time of the day or night. This is not the case with side roads off the main roads to the east, and it is possible to park there without charge and subject to no restrictions. This is, for the most part, a residential area made up of fairly new houses, selling at what are, for Coventry, top-end prices; they have gardens, drives and garages and so residents’ parking permits are not necessary. Park here and you have the road to yourself, but you must then be prepared to cross a busy road to reach the hospital.
The hospital has six car parks, plus two disabled car parks, which have been extended over the years. There are no tickets and no pay-and-display machines; it operates using automatic number plate recognition software, and it is necessary to remember your registration number because the payment stations are as you leave the hospital entrance. The first 10 minutes are always free; after that, parking costs £2.80 for an hour rising to £5.40 for four hours and £9.90 for seven hours or longer. Other car parks are some distance away, with the nearest probably being in Clay Lane; it has 66 parking spaces and four disabled spaces, is open 24/7 and the highest charge is £5 (for three hours or more).
There are long-distance bus services to the hospital:
Bus services which stop at the hospital include the following routes:
Other services which stop at the hospital are routes 1, 4, 9 and 9a, and 20a. Coventry railway station connects with London Euston and Birmingham New Street, and as already stated, the 9 and 9a services run from there to the hospital and back.
Blue Badge holders park free in car parks and on-street parking spaces operated by Coventry City Council, but not in the hospital car parks.
Residents’ parking schemes operate in several areas in Coventry, but not near the hospital.
There is no reduction in charges or easing of restrictions in the hospital car parks on bank holidays.
There are 16 spaces directly in front of the main entrance to the hospital where drivers can set down and collect passengers free of charge. They cannot park or wait there, however.
