Chester car parks

New Market Parking

New market car park

Operated by us, the new car park replaces the Market car park under the old market and Forum shopping centre which has now closed.

Access to the New Market Parking is from Hunter Street, Chester CH1 2AR and can be accessed by vehicles travelling in either direction along St Martins Way.

The award-winning multi-storey car park on Hunter Street provides parking for 800 vehicles and won Best British New Car Park 2023.
