Parking in Wokingham

As Wokingham moves forward with it's regeneration people will start to see a variety of changes happening to the town, including changes to where people park to access the centre.

The first stage of this happened in June 2016 when the existing Carnival car park closed to allow for the construction of a new 529 space multi-storey car park in this location. This work also saw the former council staff car parks at upper and lower Wellington House off Elms Road, open up to public to provide temporary alternative spaces. The new multi-storey Carnival car park is due to open June 15 2017.

On January 9, 2017, the Council permanently closed the Rose Street car park to allow for the delivery of Peach Place.

Work is also set to start in summer 2017 to deliver the Elms Field phase of the regeneration which will impact on parking at the Paddocks and Shute End car parks. The Council is currently procuring a delivery partner for this phase of the regeneration and will have more information about the phasing of these works and the impact on these car parks later in the year.  

Where can  I park  now?

Wokingham town centre has plentiful parking with around 1,200 council owned parking spaces and a further 450 private parking spaces available for members of the public. 

The majority of these spaces are within a few minutes walk of the Market Place and the towns shops and restaurants.

In order to help people choose the car park which suits their needs we have provided a plan showing the location of the car parks and details of their opening times and maximum stay below.
