Prepaid 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. Pre-paid parking tickets cost £9 and can be bought when you book for the show.
Pre-paid Parking at Bournemouth International Centre

You can arrive any time after 5pm on the event day and on arrival the barrier will automatically lift using ANPR. You do not need to collect a ticket. You can then park in any available bay (unless marked otherwise) – there are no specific spaces however if you choose an accessible bay, please display a Blue Badge. When you exit the car park via Level 1 or 4 the barrier will lift as you approach.

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.
