Times Square Car Park is one of the safest car parks in Newcastle: open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with CCTV in operation and 24-hour assistance available via intercom.

Sat Nav reference NE1 4AD takes you to Times Square Car Park (opposite Jurys Inn hotel). Ideally located at the western gateway to Newcastle City Centre on Railway Street, Times Square Car Park provides easy access to city centre shops and amenities. 635 parking spaces are available across six levels.

Times Square Car Park is owned and operated by the International Centre for Life. Payment is by card only. Assistance is available via the intercom buttons located on the payment machines in the level 1 reception area and the entry/exit gates.

Vehicle height restrictions: 7ft or 2.1m maximum. Limited spaces for taller vehicles outside the main multi-storey car park are also available.
