Aintree offers significant numbers of car parking spaces for patients and visitors.
The Multi-Storey Car Park (MSCP), at the Aintree Lodge entrance to the hospital, offers 1,250 spaces and significant numbers of Blue Badge spaces. Blue Badge parking is on the ground and second floors.
The MSCP is linked to the Elective Care Centre, the main hospital and the Walton Centre by link corridor bridges on its second floor.
There is a major barrier controlled car park off Lower Lane.
There are large numbers of car parking spaces on the 'old site', accessed from Longmoor Lane. These areas require pay and display tickets. Parking in this area ranges in distance from the main hospital. Please allow approximately 15 minutes for walking from your car if you park in this area.
There are several other areas of car parking on the site, by particular departments.
There are drop off zones by A&E, the main hospital entrance and the Elective Care Centre.
New site access
In March 2013 we opened a new access road from Lower Lane and introduced a new one-way system in front of the hospital. Details of this can be found here
- a map detailing the new access routes can be found here (PDF)

Payment machines for barriered car parks including the Multi Storey can be found at each entrance to the multi storey car park, and on the link corridor to the hospital. A machine is also located in Main Reception and also the exit to Car park 1.
All of these Machines have the ability to accept notes and give change. In addition all but the machine located on the link corridor will accept debit cards.
The pay and display car parks on the old site have a number of pay and display ticket machines conveniently located. Please note these machines do not issue change and take coins only and accept 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p and £1 coins.Free parking and concessions
Free parking is offered to patients receiving cancer treatment and any patients who require regular, lengthy and prolonged visits.
Patients will qualify if they visit the hospital at least once a fortnight, for more than 3½ hours and for a period of more than six months.
These concessions have to be authorised by ward or clinic managers
A £15 monthly pass is available for any patient; again, this has to be authorised by a ward or clinic manager.
Relatives and visitors can obtain a “saver ticket” for unlimited parking at a cost of £17.50 per week. This can be purchased from the shop by the Main Reception or the Bistro at the rear entrance.
