Special Christmas Parking offer for £1 every Sunday!

Croydon Business Improvement District (BID) and Centrale Shopping Centre have teamed up to offer consumers a special £1 car parking promotion every Sunday from 27th November 2022 in the run-up to Christmas.
There is no escaping the challenges we all face this Christmas, with the impact of the increased cost of living affecting every one of us.

The partnership will allow consumers, wherever they travel from, to park for £1 per visit, whether it is for one hour or isx hours, every Sunday from 27th November 2022 right through to 18th December 2022, at Centrale’s multi-story car park.

Whether you are visiting Croydon to complete some of your Christmas shopping, catching up with friends over lunch, visiting the FREE Croydon Christmas Roller Rink, attending one of the Festive Gingerbread workshops, visiting Santa’s Grotto or simply checking out the Christmas Lights, this parking offer is for you.

We need to do all we can to support people as our community’s grapple with the impact of the rise in the cost of living. While the worries will remain for us all, we hope our £1 car parking offer will, for a short time, allow friends and families to shop without worrying too much about the cost of their car parking ticket. It’s the little things.

There is no denying that our town centre is struggling and so we hope this partnership will support our business community, attracting the all-important Christmas trade back to our favourite shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and leisure facilities as we look to spend time and enjoy Christmas with friends and family.

Matthew Sims, Chief Executive at Croydon BID

Parking in Centrale Shopping Centres’ multi-storey car park will only cost £1 on the four Sundays before Christmas, coinciding with Croydon BID and Centrale & Whitgift Shopping Centres’ action-packed programme of free Christmas entertainment.

Centrale & Whitgift shopping centres will be opening a free roller rink, from 25th November until 24th December. To add to the festive fun, there will also be free Gingerbread decorating workshops as well as the return of Santa’s Grotto in Centrale, now in its thirteenth year.

Tickets can be pre-booked online, with a limited number also available on the day on a first-come, first-served basis.

We’re working hard this year to support local businesses by providing free experiences for the Croydon community. What better way to support our stores and events by offering £1 parking on Sundays in our multi-storey car park. We’re delighted Croydon BID have been able to run this promotion and we hope this will give more families the chance to come together in the heart of Croydon this Christmas
