When is it?

Our Alive After Five scheme is on all year round!

Participating car parks

Shop late, Park free.

Get Alive after Five in Newcastle!


Approaching 10 years after its inception, NE1's Alive after Five continues to operate in the city, when Covid-restrictions allow.

The initiative strives to make life in the city centre easier for everyone through two measures; park for free after 5pm in 7 multi-storey car parks Monday to Saturday and shop late, until 8pm weekdays and 7pm Saturdays.

Once we're able to head into the city again, to shop and dine, you can park for free nearby with Alive after Five. Participating car parks are as follows:

- Eldon Square

- Eldon Garden

- Dean Street

- Quayside Multi-Storey

- Oxford Street

- Manors

- Grainger Town Multi-Storey

See map for precise locations of each car park.

* Some bays may be exempt from free parking after 5pm. These will be clearly marked by the car park provider.
