Parking at FantasyCon
« on: September 02, 2010, 12:01:48 pm »
The Britannia Hotel has come to an arrangement with the NCP car park on St James Street to offer cheap parking to attendees of FantasyCon: just 5 per 24 hours, a substantial saving on the usual rates.

Note that it's a one-time ticket, the special rate lasting only as long as the car remains in the carpark.

To take advantage of this offer, ask for the ticket at the reception desk of the Britannia upon your arrival. Note that there are only 70 such tickets available, and they cannot be booked in advance.

Hi Stephen - does that only apply to people who are actually staying at the Britiannia, or attendees of FCon no matter where they're staying? Only I'm booked in to the hotel next door - Rutland something, I think it's called?

I was wondering what to do about parking.
Thanks.  :)

There's also a NCP car park at the bottom of Maid Marion Way: Arndale Centre Car Park (for day commuters like us..) that charges 3.50 a day on Saturdays & Sundays, though normal rates apply on Fridays.

These deals are usually hotel specific

The Britannia have said that it's primarily for hotel guests, but other attendees can ask too and if there are enough they'll probably be able to get one.

Thanks, Stephen. I might try my luck there on the Friday then.

And thanks too, Selina, that's useful to know. I'll probably move to the Arndale Centre one on the Saturday!  :)
