The Meeting House is in a restricted zone (everyday including Sundays, from 8am to 8pm) with pay and display areas. Maximum time is 2 hours.

Parking on Sundays outside the Meeting House on Clarendon Street (or elsewhere in Zone 1) between 10am and 6pm will cost £1 for 2 hours (the maximum allowed). Parking on Peel Street and adjacent roads (in Zone 3) will cost £1 on Sundays (covering 10am to 6pm), but do check the expiry time on your ticket! Parking from 8am to 10am or from 6pm to 8pm on Sundays costs 50p.

In both zones, weekday evening parking from 6pm to 8pm will be £1. After 8pm parking remains free. Traffic wardens are very active, even on Sundays, and will give tickets for cars parked not in designated parking places; or without a valid displayed parking receipt; or for feeding meters; or parking in disabled areas without displaying a 'disabled' badge.

Beware! many 'Residents Only' spaces, throughout Nottingham, have had their restriction extended to include Sundays.

There are multi-story car parks nearby: they are expensive - typically £2.80 for the first 2 hours and £1.50/hour after that.

Park and Ride - For visitors who are coming for more than a short period there are good Park and Ride facilities provided by the Tram. Parking is free for tram users.
