Visiting Gateshead town centre? Park all day for just £1.00 in our Sunderland Road (Tynegate) car park. It's about a five minute walk to the town centre and to the Civic Centre. For SatNav the nearest postcode to use is NE8 3HY (opposite side of Sunderland Road).  

Reduced public car park spaces

The number of public spaces available in the Civic Centre car park (entrance on Arthur Street) will be significantly reduced for seven weeks, starting on Monday 1 November as contractors work on installing solar car ports.

Alternative car parks are available nearby at Regent Court (NE8 1EW), Sunderland Road (Tynegate), Swinburne Street (NE8 1AX) or Gladstone Terrace.

The town centre and Gateshead Quays are served by a range of council-owned and private car parks. Our Icon for pdf car park map [2.13MB] shows locations and details of facilities available.

The charges displayed apply from April 2020. If there is a difference between the tariffs shown and the tariffs displayed on the machine, the machine display will be correct.

As well as paying with cash and displaying a ticket in the traditional way, for a small additional administration fee the PayByPhone option is available at all of our car parks.

Each car park has its own location code which must be quoted to make the transaction, and where available this code is shown below.
