There are also one and a half hour (P90) parking zones for those looking to make a more express visit. Look out for the markings to make sure you park in the right space.
Free extended parking

The kind staff there will give you an extended parking coupon which will last for the whole day. You will need to display this on your dashboard. Remember, car parks are for the use of Chartwell customers only, so please don't be offended if you are asked to verify that you have been shopping at the Centre.

Kids play area
Kids love to play and we have the perfect play area for our visitors under 5. If they need some down time from the shops head along to our play area in the foodcourt on Level 2 outside EVENT Cinemas. You must supervise your children as Chartwell Shopping Centre does not provide supervision. To keep our play area safe and clean we ask that kids please remove their shoes and have no food or drink in this area. Chartwell takes no responsibility for any injury from the use of the play area. Any use of this area by children outside of age limit is deemed unauthorised use.
