There’s no parking, you have to park in town. We parked on Whitehall street and it was £2.80 for 5 hours (long stay) short stay car parks may be slightly closer but more expensive

4.95 per adult and 6,95 per child a bit pricey I thought for what there is in there it was a struggle to spend over a hour in there
