Parking

A new 1800 car Multistorey Car Park has recently been opened in the old Foxhall Road GWR/APCOA car park area. This car park is quite a long walk to reach the Railway Centre and also at present involves crossing the main railway line via a footbridge with a considerable number of stairs on each side. Signage at this new car park is rather sparse, for which we apologise. If you do use this car park, please once you have paid, exit the car park and walk along the path leading to the footbridge. Cross over the railway using the footbridge and the path will lead towards Didcot Parkway station from where you will see the signs for us via the station subway.

If you park in the main station car park, note that it is usually cheaper to pay using your mobile phone than to pay the advertised fee by cash or credit card. Also any special offer which may be in force for parking will normally only apply through this route. See the APCOA website for more details.

Alternative, more convenient and often cheaper, parking is usually available at weekends opposite the station. There are two car parks here, one on either side of the Prince of Wales public house. Follow the signs to the Railway Station to find these car parks.

If you are using the main car park you may find it convenient for passengers to disembark at the station entrance before the driver parks the car.

A parking fee may be payable at any of these car parks which are all independent of the Railway Centre.

Some parking for those with Disabled Parking badges is normally available near the station entrance. More information about accessibility is available.

Please be aware that some of companies which run the various car parks are very enthusiastic about fining people who do not park properly within the marked bays!
