As the venue is city centre based the building is surrounded by double yellow lines, we strongly recommend that you do not park on the lines, the local wardens see it as a cash cow and will be hot on your trail.

There are two car parks within close proximity of the hotel. There is Mount Pleasant Car Park which is open from 7am – 8pm daily, the cost of parking is £4 for 24 hours. (Please note the car park shuts promptly at 8pm and cars will be locked in overnight, you will also have to ticket your car at opening time the following morning . You can re-ticket by mobile phone however. The Mount Pleasant Car Park has a height restriction of 2.06m.
Alternatively the Adelphi has an open-air car park which is accessible 24 hours, the cost of parking is £12 for 24 Hours. This car park is suitable for Vans and Large vehicles. CCTV is operation on the car park.
Please note that the Adelphi car park uses number plate recognition – this means that you are committed to using the car park by driving in. The traffic wardens are based just facing the hotel and are particularly hot on issuing tickets! Sadly this is beyond our control and we would suggest that if you have large/ heavy items you drop them off outside the Adelphi and perhaps park your car and transport the rest of the items.
