And if you arrive before 10:00 and want to park there even for just a hour it will cost you £9.40.

That is true, but where are you planning to go, there and back, on a train for just an hour?

One probably wouldn't. However I have an issue with this flat fare mentality. It is no more difficult to programme a ticketing machine with a tiered system, so it is just pure profiteering to make everyone pay top whack each time.

It's the same on the trams. I may be more inclined to use them in a hop on / off manner if they didn't charge £2 to go from the square to the theatre! Again, if you have a conductor taking your cash anyway how can it be any more difficult to implement. It's not as if the things are full.

Weekend rates are good though, its £9 for 6 hours in a council car park (ie Trinity Sq)and only £4 here so thats not bad ? Its also in a good location to get quickly in and out of the city from West Bridgford to so I might give it a go tomorrow....

As I work a stones throw away I thought I'd have a look at the place over lunch. It's really, really... car parky!

Some mildly interesting views from the roof, and quite a nice one looking down on the Hicking building. The lifts seem quite slow though.

True but 950 new spaces for £4 each on a Saturday is good news - particularly when Broadmarsh is £11+ for the day and its just round the corner.

Like the vast majority (I suspect ?) I claim for parking if I use the train in the week so adding another tenner to the £135 London return ticket is something I wouldn't even think about. Can't you also add parking to the standard train ticket for a couple of pounds extra ?

Wandered in and took a look around earlier this afternoon.

A security guard ended up telling me to stop taking photos as they were worried about the train station. He asked me politely though! Took a panaroma which I posted in the skyline thread.

Well, I guess it's actually as much to make sure that the station car park is being used for people taking trains, rather than parking there for shopping and popping into town on the tram etc.

Has anybody used the cycle hub at Nottingham train station? Considering cycling to catch my train tomorrow and just wondering how safe/secure it is.

Average survival time of each bike after departure of owner = 0.1 miliseconds. Fact.
