We're in the city centre, 5 minutes' walk from the train station, and across the road from a 526-space NCP car park, NCP Rutland Centre. Stamp your NCP ticket at our little blue machine by Grays counter to get 24-hour parking there for £7.95 (pay at the car park, not LCB). The standard parking fee for 2-3 hours is more than this discounted price (see below).
