Times Square Car Park

Times Square Car Park is ideally located at the western gateway to Newcastle City Centre on Railway Street, providing easy access to city centre shops and amenities. 635 parking spaces and two electric vehicle charging points are available across six levels.

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).

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

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

Keeping you and our staff safe during the Coronavirus crisis

To maintain safety standards, we have amended some of our normal practices including:

  • Whilst in the car park, it’s important you remember and follow all the advice given by the Government inclusive of any Public Health guidance at this time.

  • We ask and encourage you to observe social distancing in all areas, including lifts, by respecting the 2m rule. To remind you, we’ve installed signs in key locations in the car park. 

  • Two people maximum, facing away from each other, can use the lifts at any given time.

  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning procedures, including enhanced cleaning for particularly busy areas (eg payment machines). 

  • Payment is by card only.
