Parking is free and coach drivers will have access to toilets and facilities for cleaning coaches. Drivers can also travel in and out of the city centre for free from this coach park on the Park and Ride service. Available 7am - 7pm Monday to Saturday (no service on Sundays).  

New Durham City Coach Park

A new coach park, with improved facilities is being built at Belmont Park and Ride. Coach drivers will continue to drop off and pick up visitors in the city centre at Freeman's Place.

Once it is fully operational at the end of September 2019, it will increase the number of spaces available for coaches from 11 to 30. It will also provide drivers with better facilities, enabling coach drivers to empty chemical toilets, clean their vehicles inside and out and use the on-site coach drivers washroom and welfare facilities. 

The coach park is free of charge to use.
