Park and Ride

The Enderby Park and Ride now stops outside Leicester Royal Infirmary. To recuce congestion, we ask that you please consider using Park and Ride rather than driving into the city.

    If you are displaying a blue disabled badge you can park for free in the marked disabled spaces outside the main public car parks.  However, if you park in the main public car parks the parking fee will still apply.

    There are drop-off points at the main entrances to all of the hospitals.

    Be careful when parking to keep restricted areas clear. These are indicated by red markings. Cars parked in these areas will be dealt with accordingly.
  • Free Parking for Prime Carers
    The prime carer of a patient that has been in hospital for more than 6 weeks will be provided with free parking from the beginning of the seventh week. There will be one exemption per patient but this can be passed between carers. The prime carer must provide proof of previous car park usage.

How to find the car park office:

The car park office can be found on the ground floor of the Windsor building, it is signposted as ‘Car Park Office’.

When entering the Windsor building from the main Havelock Street car park you need to walk past the reception on your left and head towards the end of the corridor. At the end of the corridor turn left and walk towards the orange walls about half way down the corridor. Before you get to the orange walls you will find the corridor widens, and the car park office is on your left here. You need to turn left and immediately left (back on yourself), press the buzzer on the wall (right hand side) and stand back as the doors open outwards.
