    I started work in westfield 2 days ago, i’ll be working 6 days a week. Over three hrs parking is £9, that means i’ll end up paying over £50 a week on parking?! Is there no staff discount ?

    I think Westfield is a good thing for the area but unfortunately there is no more free parking. There is no drop off point so I used to drive in, drop off and drive out, approximately two minutes. This will now cost £2.50 to drop the wife off.

    Tariff: Monday – Sunday
    0-2 hours: £2.50

    What happened to the evening charges, where you had to pay £2, between 18:00pm to 7:50am?

  5. Car Park Dave September 20, 2012 at 9:50 am #

    All car parks open again.
    Still 2 hrs free for everyone.
    Max daily charge is now £5.

    • Pam September 20, 2012 at 11:16 am #

      Hi Dave, is the daily charge now £5 forever or is that a limited offer? Will it still be £5 in November? x

    will we still be able to use the shopping centre car park when the games start next mth.

    • Rumel June 25, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

      All the car parks are now closed until the end of the games in September. They are allowing blue badge holders to use the car parks still until mid July apparently.

    Hi

    Is the night parking still going for £2? Can I park in any car park?

  10. kalvin January 18, 2012 at 7:38 am #

    I came to Westfields almost 10 days ago ,i stayed a few hours and the got a parking charge of 8 pounds which i expected but my point is that parking to shop should be free. why should we have to pay to spend our money .We drove from Clayhall in Essex,so for us its just as easy to get to lakeside shopping centre where the parking is FREE for as long as you like,and lakeside has almost the same shops there as westfield.Its probably cheaper in Fuel to drive to lakeside park for free rather than paying to park at Westfield ,this is one of the major concerns i have when going shopping , wether the parking is free for shoppers and if its not i rarher shop else where ,where the shopping centres have the courtesy to offer free parking.This is in my opinion one the major factors why shopping centres are empty is that the parking is not free.

    when will we know new charges

    • Host, MSUK January 12, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

      Hi Bill, charges are staying the same, as far as we know. However, “2 hours free” has been extended until 31 March 2012. Thanks for visiting MSUK.

  12. Asis January 7, 2012 at 8:33 am #

    Is there any parking charges if i park under 2 hours?

  13. Greg January 6, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

    am working in a shop unit due open soon, i entered car park at 7.50am, i left at 9.23 to go to a builders merchant. i put chip in machine and £4.00 showed up. i pressed help button and explained i have been in car park for only 1hr 33mins, he said it was an error and to leave chip on top of machine and the machine will issue another chip, THIS time for £2.00, i pressed help button again and was told as i entered car park before 8.00am it was classed as an overnight stay and had to pay £2.00. i find this as an absolute PISS TAKE, it is not the first time the robbing bastards have tried to con me,( they have tried to charge me £16.00 on 3 occasions when my stay was under 7 hours, which is only £8.00. …….When you put your chip in machine please check in display panel how long you have parked otherwise you will be CONNED… you have been warned.

    • bill January 9, 2012 at 7:50 am #

      i also was charged £4 for under 2 hours stay from 07.43 to 09.23 in december and phoned their office , i was promised a refund . still waiting .

    Hi John,
    we agree with you. Westfield Stratford have not released a lot of information about Blue Badge parking at the centre… it could be that they’re updating their pricing structure. That’s why we recommend that you contact the centre directly. By phone, if possible. Try: 0208 221 7300.

    We’ve not heard of Westfield Stratford offering “up to 4 hours parking free if you present your blue badge and ID.”

    However, Westfield London (in West London) do offer this. See their website here: http://uk.westfield.com/london/getting-there/car-park-rates/

  15. John Ess January 3, 2012 at 1:26 pm #

    Can you answer the original question here. Are there any concessions or fee reduction for Blue Badge holders as in the cars parks there is no obvious information and both my visits have cost me £4 in parking fees for being there just over 3 hours.
    The link and info posted here says nothing other than visiting the Motability shop and hiring a scooter.
    It mentions something about getting up to 4 hours parking free if you present your blue badge and ID. Not sure how you can do this and still park in a designated bay as the Blue Badge should be displayed there.
    It seems that there is a definite desire to be non helpful to Blue Badge holders at Westfield.
    I will not be revisiting as the cost is prohibitive and I advise other Blue Badge holders who may be inclined to visit now the crowds are dissipating to sprint ( as if we can) around the multi layers of shops within the multi layerered expanse of a mall.

    Hi ,
    Can you please provide some info regarding motorbike parking ..
    Does this parking contain separate motorbike bays and is it free to park there ?

    Regards

  18. Diane December 18, 2011 at 12:49 am #

    We were shopping on staturday 17/12/11. We understand it offers 2 hours free parking. We didn’t record the entering time, but we knew it was around 2 hours. When we exit the car park , the exit barrier opened while the screen still showing “please wait…”. I was worry if thats because we exceeded the 2 hours limit. if we haven’t pay the correct parking charge , is there any way we can know if we should pay and how to pay afterwards.

  19. Peter November 18, 2011 at 5:09 am #

    Parking at Bluewater Shopping Centre is free. Why then would I pay to park & visit Westfield? Charging motorists to shop makes no commercial sense at all. The 2 hour free period needs to be extended to 4 if you actually wish to encourage people to support this venture.

    • paul December 10, 2011 at 10:48 am #

      parking at bluewater is free because the shops are rubbish! charging for parking at westfield must make some commercial sense as the car parks and the shops are full!

  20. liza Valmonte November 14, 2011 at 7:57 am #

    I have used the parking services at Stratford Westfield on many occassions but i still find it difficult to find the posted signs. I think they need to be bold and user friendly.
    On top of that the exits are very difficult to navigate, i always getting lost all the time, even my bofriend says the same thing. There should be a better way by putting a colour line on the pavement to indicate that you are exiting.
    In addition, the 2nd week of mall opening i was stranded on my way out with lots of drivers not knowing how to use the coin token! If they have not paid the parking after 2 hrs ofcourse the barriers will not work. But no one seems to know where the machine to pay especially if u are new to the place. Why can’t they colour code the coin as well according to the zone you parked in?
    Lastly, i have not seen any welcoming sign at the entrance on Warton road? This area is supposely world class and not to forget a Thank you sign for visiting the Straford City. POSTED SIGNS like these will make a big difference to a lot of people. Please do add on some trees and plants too in the vicinity. Thank you.

    They really should have a better deal for parking especially for the staff. The car parks were empty yesterday and it was generally more quiet. Why waste all that space

    • Host, MSUK November 3, 2011 at 10:52 am #

      Hi JP – is there a special deal for staff? Do you get a discount?

  22. jan October 27, 2011 at 11:30 am #

    how long does the introductory last for?

    • Host, MSUK October 28, 2011 at 6:44 am #

      Hi Jan. Until 31st October, say the posters.

  23. Maria October 22, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    i saw a poster on the bus stop saying that there is free parking offer available until the 31st october.

    i have looked on the website, but i cannot find any offers ont there, except the 2 hours free one.

  24. dorothy lawson October 16, 2011 at 8:45 am #

    I need to know the cost of parking for disabled card holders BEFORE decide to arrange a visit as I am coming from Holland.

    Thank you D.Lawson

  25. Emma October 10, 2011 at 3:17 am #

    Is there something like a monthly ticket for parking i am going to be working there and i used to get this in ilford exchange where i paid £34.00 a month that was so much better then £10.00 a day, you cant surely expect staff to pay up to £16.00 a day!

    • Host, MSUK October 10, 2011 at 6:58 am #

      Hi Emma, you’d have to contact your employers and the mall directly to find out that info. The mall contact details are above. Thanks for visiting MSUK.

  26. Ramen October 8, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Cannot find where the entrance of parking is! Looked for “From the East via Alma St Bridge enter E15 1QA” but google street view leads no where!

    • Host, MSUK October 10, 2011 at 6:59 am #

      Hi Ramen, the car park is not on Google Maps yet. But when you visit the shopping centre, the car park is clearly signposted. Best wishes.

  27. Allen October 3, 2011 at 11:56 am #

    Never mind the Shoppers being ripped off for parking what about the staff that have to rotor 24hr and still have to pay

    I was planning to take a friend to see the shopping centre and looked for a map to plan my parking, as we are both wheelchair users. Unfortunately I can’t find anything to indicate where I can park within easy distance of the shops that we want to see. Also although the parking arrangements make mention of the Blue Badge Scheme, I don’t know if we are exempt from the charges. It all becomes a bit stressful, as we are reliant on the car to get us there, public transport unfortunately not being an option. Is there a map available?

  31. pete September 18, 2011 at 4:27 am #

    blue water will keep our business why pay to park to spend money in shops at westfield

  32. Miss A Azzopardi September 7, 2011 at 12:32 pm #

    I would like to know if there will be free parking spaces at Westfield Stratford City, especially if one can prove to be a resident. Please reply. Thank you in advance.
    As in Lakeside and Brent Cross I believe they are still free to park a car. If they want us to shop and it will take time to walk around parking should be free.

    • MSUK, Host September 7, 2011 at 6:06 pm #

      Hi Miss Azzopardi, we’ve not heard of free parking for residents at the mall.

      It looks like the council have set up Residential Parking Zones instead, that are supposed to protect residents from being inconvenienced by the many people wanting to park their cars in the streets around the centre.

      See newham.gov.uk/RPZ for more info.
