Changes to the Car Parking Policy at Linenhall Car Park.

Following Cheshire West and Chester’s adoption of a new borough wide car parking scheme, including the abolition of the ‘Free after 3’ parking initiative in city centre car parks, Chester Race Company will be changing the car parking policy at Linenhall Car Park.

From Monday 19 November, car parking will no longer be free after 2pm on weekdays and all day on a Sunday. Instead, the Race Company will adopt the same car parking policy as is in place at Chester Racecourse.

However, with the commencement of late-night Christmas shopping in the city from Thursday 22 November, parking at Linenhall will be available free of charge every Thursday evening from this date between 5-10pm, until Thursday 20 December (inclusive), supporting Christmas trade in the city and enabling shoppers to benefit from free parking in close proximity to retailers.

Car parking at Linenhall will be also available free of charge on the last Sunday of the month outside of the racing season. This initiative will be replaced once the racing season starts in May 2019, where parking will be free on the Sunday following a Saturday race meeting.

The free parking dates/times at Linenhall Car Park for the remainder of 2018 are:

Thursday 22 November (5-10pm)

Sunday 25 November (all day)

Thursday 29 November (5-10pm)

Thursday 6 December (5-10pm)

Thursday 13 December (5-10pm)

Thursday 20 December (5-10pm)

Sunday 30 December (all day)

NB – parking is also available free of charge at Chester Racecourse on the Sunday dates referenced above.

Outside of the specified dates, car parking at Linenhall Car Park will be available at an all-day rate of £5 per car. Overnight parking will also be available at a rate of £10 per car. Car parking at Chester Racecourse is available at the same rates.
