Multi-storey car parks

Park mark logo

Bracknell Forest Council has two multi-storey car parks located in Bracknell town centre on The Ring and open 24 hours a day.

Both are well lit, clean and easy-to-use with bays of generous width. They have CCTV systems and regular security patrols. High Street Car Park provides quick and level access to the retail and office areas.

A car-specific token is issued on entry to the car park. Before returning to your car you need to use this token to pay at the machines. You then insert your token in the machine at the exit barrier as you leave. You can use cash, debit or credit cards to pay.

If you use the car park regularly then you should consider buying a season ticket. There are a number of options available to help you save money.

Free, covered and secure parking is provided for bicycles and motorcycles.

There is a parking office at the exit to both car parks:

  • High Street car park – open 7.30am to 7pm on Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 6.30pm on Saturday
  • Braccan Walk (formerly Charles Square) Car Park – open 7.30am to 8pm on Monday to Saturday, 9.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday

Park Mark™

For the past 5 years our multi-storey car parks have been awarded the Park Mark™ award for safety.

This scheme is aimed at reducing crime and the fear of crime. It is managed by the British Parking Association and is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers.
