Stockport’s Peel Centre is a popular shopping centre, and rightly so with stores from New Look to Hobbycraft, Toys R Us to Currys. The shops are great, but there’s a regular stream of complaints from people who feel they’ve been unfairly given a parking ticket – they appear in the papers all the time. Just google Peel Centre Parking to see a few of them.
What to do?
Plenty of people choose to park there – the car park’s normally pretty busy and they’re even looking to expand beyond the 800+ spaces currently offered. But if you want to drive to the Peel Centre and don’t want to park in their car park, there’s an easy alternative.
The Council’s Newbridge Lane car park is just 90 seconds walk from the Peel Centre, and if you’re staying for an hour or less it’s 50p cheaper too. Not got any change? You can pay using the RingGo app on your smartphone.
To walk from the Newbridge Lane car park to the Peel Centre, walk over Millgate Bridge towards Matalan, then turn left when you’ve crossed the bridge, walk down the side of the Peel Centre and you’re there. Just 90 seconds!
