Whether to spend in the sales or to pick up an essential purchase; thousands of us head to shopping centres across the country every week, yet we often forget to take into consideration one often-unavoidable cost; parking.
We set out to research just how much it costs to park your car at 500 shopping centres across the UK for a two hour period, in a bid to reveal where we’re paying the most…
Sources & Methodology:
The data was collected from Wikipedia’s ‘List of Shopping Centres in the United Kingdom’ and for each, we took the cost of 2 hours of parking on a Saturday, as this is typically when shopping centres are the busiest.
For each we researched prices according to either the website of the shopping centre itself, or official car park websites for those run by the likes of NCP.
We didn't include any shopping centres which didn’t offer dedicated parking that was specifically for the centre itself.
