Which is the best car park for you at Crewe station?

In the vicinity of Crewe station there are about 10 car parks within easy walking distance.

Parking charges and security levels vary considerably. While Crewe isn’t a vehicle crime hotspot by any means, it still seems to make sense to avoid the car parks through which late night revellers might pass on their way home, especially if you’re parking overnight.

Equally it makes no sense to pay through the nose to use the "official" station car park (see photo) when there are lower cost options with similar security about the same distance away.

Here are our findings. The Crewe station parking options are all here:

  1. Pedley Street (Official short stay) - 3 minute walk - 40 mins free then £10/hour
    • Great for dropping off a friend or relative and helping them onto their train. Check your watch when you arrive though - 40 minutes can disappear quickly sometimes!
  2. Pedley Street (Official long stay) - 4 minute walk - £12/day (Mon-Fri); £5/day (Sat-Sun)
    • This is a convenient, barrier-controlled car park. Use this one if you want to spend £12 per day.
  3. Weston Road (Official long stay) - 3 minute walk - £12/day (Mon-Fri); £5/day (Sat-Sun)
    • This is a new (2015), barrier-controlled car park. It also costs an outrageous £12 per day. This is what people must pay, when they haven’t done any research.
  4. Weston Road SIP (private car park) - 2 minute walk - £5/day
    • This is a new (2016) private car park. It costs a very reasonable £5 per day and is the closest of the lot. However it has no security and is right on the corner of Weston Road where hundreds of pedestrians can walk through daily.
    • It’s small and becomes full quite early. You can’t pre-book.
  5. Railway Street (council car park) - 4 minute walk - £4.50/day (Mon-Fri)
    • This is a standard council car park with no security. Pedestrians can walk right past your car all day long.

  8. Hope Street (council car park) - 6 minute walk - £2.90/day
    • This is the lowest daily price in town but is very small and often becomes full quite early which can cost valuable time as you will have to find somewhere else if it’s full when you arrive. You can’t reserve spaces here and, the elephant in the room... maximum stay: 11 hours.
