Located underground, the Piazza car park is probably one of the UK’s more famous car parks, having been featured in a number of BBC and Granada television productions, including Cold Feet. Piazza’s unique clean and spacious interior features “Q-Park Red” walls, wider parking bays and special lighting, unique to the Q-Park house design. Piazza has also recently been awarded the European Standard Parking Award (ESPA) – only three car parks in the UK have received this accreditation and all three of these car parks are owned and managed by Q-Park.

As well as investing L1.7 million in the refurbishment of The Piazza, Q-Park has just completed the building of a 340 space underground car park opposite St Mary’s Hospital and also operates four car parks in the Piccadilly Basin area of Manchester - a total of 880 spaces split across Dale Street, Port Street, Ducie Street and Great Ancoats Street. Q-Park also operate park and ride and chauffeur-based airport parking services at Manchester Airport under the Carminder and Ringway brand names.

Although a relative new-comer to the UK parking industry, Q-Park Ltd won Overall Winner at this year’s British Parking Awards. The company is gaining reputation as one of the leading organisations in the industry, setting high standards and delivering unrivalled quality to the UK parking public.
