This is no more than a 5 to 10 minute walk out of the car park straight down Trinity Street into Kings Parade, left into Benet Street and on into Wheeler Street.
Queen Anne car park
Slightly further away but again no more than a 10 minute walk is Queen Anne Car Park in Gonville Place. This car park is cheaper than Grand Arcade, so if you can manage the walk then it’s probably worth it.
