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 opened in June 2017.
On January 9, 2017, the Council permanently closed the Rose Street car park to allow for the delivery of Peach Place, and in March 2018 the Wellington Road and Paddocks car parks were closed to allow for the delivery of Elms Field.
From July 23, 2018 there will also be changes in the Shute End Civic Offices car park as work starts to deliver the Shute End section of the new through road which will link Shute End with Wellington Road. You can find out more about these works in our latest news section.
Where can I park now?
Wokingham town centre has plentiful parking with over 1,200 council owned parking spaces and other 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 council car parks and details of their opening times and maximum stay below.
Please note that the Elms Road multi-storey car park (shown below as car park no 6) is no longer managed by WBC and any queries relating to this facility should be directed to NCP rather than the Council. Following the closure of the lower section of Elms Road this car park can no longer be accessed from Wellington Road and people should follow the diversion route via new roads Biscoe Way and Earle Crescent.
