Afternoon PH.

Does anyone know of any places that are free to park near Southampton hospital for a few days? Brother has got to have a operation next week, and we don't want to pay however much hospitals want to charge.

Thanks.

The nearest place would be about a 15min walk, I worked on some new flats opposite the hospital and there was no on site parking, parking in the hosputal car park is only about £7 per day.

It's mostly time restricted or pay & display parking around Southampton General Hospital, so you'd probably be looking at parking on one of the nearby estates and walking in - have a feeling that even some of these are permit holders only.

A 7 day ticket in the hospital multi-storey is £16.80.

Ha, bad experience there?

Going to go for the multi story, I can only be there for a bit, and don't want to spend most of it finding somewhere and walking!

Bit more advice, which is the best way to get from Poole to the hospital? I'm leaving at around 1800, so not the best time! Would the M27 or going to Lymington be the best at that time of the day?

How far do you want to walk?
Try Dale Valley Road, Hollybrook avenue, Dale Valley Gardens.

In the 70's / 80's I lived in Dale Valley Road, I know that there is permit parking now, but I don't think it goes all the way along.

Alternatively, park at the Sports Centre, there is a free car park & on road parking in Dunkirk Road. From the end of Dunkirk road, turn right and walk up Lordswood Road. You'll see some large gates on your left just after the last house. This is the cemetry, turn in here and follow the road. You pop out on Tremona Road very near to the main hospital entrance.

Close as possible really, thanks smile.

Parents managed to get a few free passes in the multi story, so all good at the moment smile.

The walk from the Sports Centre is about a mile, and not much of it is flat !

It's shorter and flatter than you might think.

Sling it round Bourne Avenue/Colebrook avenue etc. No permit parking there. I myself live in Branksome and it's all good.

Dunkirk Road is pretty unsavoury, to say the least!

I have a spare space near ocean village area under my flat you could use for a week not sure where that is in reference to the hospital though.

I'm sure that when the local kids see a powerfully built company director (sporting a goatee) parking up, that they'll be too scared of the consequences to even consider looking at the the OP's Pagani.
