Visitor Information


The Balmoral is pleased to offer a valet car parking service. Upon arrival at the main entrance, you’ll be greeted by a doorman, who will take care of your luggage and parking. As a guest of the hotel, you are guaranteed a parking space and need not pre-book.  

There is a charge of £35 per night for the car park, charged to your room account automatically. The fee is charged on a nightly basis, and therefore will not apply for the day you check out – so there is no need to rush.

Should you wish to self-park outside the hotel premises, there is a multi-storey Q-Park a five-minute walk from the hotel. The Q-Park is located on Greenside Row and offers overnight parking. Reception can provide you with directions.
