Parking at Cripps 
Parking for members is available for 60p from 3pm Monday to Friday and all weekend in the two main car parks next to Cripps. Please note the main car park in front of Cripps is not available on bank holidays. 
These are accessible through the hospital grounds. In addition, members must display a Trilogy parking permit alongside their ticket which is available from Cripps Recreation Centre. 
Limited parking is also available beneath the Cripps Centre accessed from the Bedford Road and is for members only. This car park is operated by Parking Eye and members need to input their vehicle registration details into a keypad in the central hub each time they visit the centre to avoid a £100 parking charge. Please follow the signs to access the centre from this car park whilst the normal route is unavailable. 
The nearest public carparks are Midsummer Meadows, St Johns and St Michael's Multi Story carparks.
