Reserved parking is available for most shows in the multi-storey car park next to the venue, giving you plenty of time to park and to take advantage of pre-show drinks and dining. Parking tickets cost £10.50 and can be bought when you book for the show.
Your parking ticket will be sent to you along with your tickets by your chosen delivery method. Please display the ticket on your dashboard and hang your pass on your or rear-view mirror before you park. You can arrive any time between 5pm and 9pm on the event day and leave your vehicle in the car park until 8am the following morning. If you arrive after 9pm, we cannot guarantee a reserved space.
Reserved parking bays can be found on Level 4 and above and our staff will be there to help you find your space. Spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Your reserved parking ticket is only valid for designated reserved parking areas. If you park elsewhere, without displaying a valid pay and display ticket you may receive a parking ticket.

Parking at Bournemouth Pavilion
The nearest car park for Bournemouth Pavilion is the adjacent pay and display, public car park on Westover Road providing 163 spaces. More parking is available behind the venue, at Bath Road North (116 spaces) and Bath Road South (163 spaces) car parks – and in the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) multi-storey car park (650 spaces), about a ten-minute walk from the Pavilion.
These are all public, pay and display car parks and cannot be reserved exclusively for Pavilion visitors. The demand for spaces is particularly high at weekends and school holidays and when matinées, summer shows and pantomime are running, so be sure to arrive in plenty of time to find a space and get to your seat.
We recommend that you allow up to an hour before the show starts.
Parking at Portsmouth Pyramids
Car parking is available around the building, providing 180 pay and display spaces. This is a public car park, also used by BH Live Active visitors using Pyramids health and wellbeing facilities. Spaces cannot be reserved exclusively for people attending entertainment events, so be sure to arrive in plenty of time to find a space and get to your seat. Road parking – free after 6pm – is available nearby on the seafront.
