Mermaid Quay has a 380-space, two-level visitor car park located immediately next door (entrance on Stuart Street). The car park operates on a ticketless parking system which uses the latest automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.

As you drive into the car park, the ANPR equipment will record your registration number. On your way back to your vehicle, go to one of the pay stations and type in your registration number. You will automatically be charged on the basis of the number of hours you have been parked in the car park (rounded up to the nearest hour).

At the exit, the ANPR equipment will recognise your number plate and, if you have paid, the barrier will rise automatically. If you have not paid, you will not be able to leave the car park.



The Mermaid Quay car park has 16 designated bays for disabled users and 10 ‘Parent & Child’ bays, all of which are located on the ground floor of the car park, between the exit barrier and pay stations 3-6. Full parking rates apply to these spaces, as detailed below.

Please be aware that the Mermaid Quay car park has a maximum height restriction of 2 metres.
