Parking at Torbay Hospital
There are a number of car parks for patients and visitors on the Torbay hospital site. Parking charges apply 24 hours a day.
Pay and display
Some car parks are pay and display and require you to purchase a ticket from the machine located in the car park at the time you park. These machines accept coin payments.
Pay on foot
We also have pay on foot car parks which you access through a barrier, collecting a ticket as you enter the car park. If you use a pay on foot car park you will pay for your parking at the end of your visit. Pay stations are located at Level 2, Outpatients and in the pay on foot car parks. These machines accept coins, notes, and credit/debit card payments.
Free parking for blue badge holders is available only in non-barrier pay and display car parks and other designated marked disabled bays. The full charge is applicable in all other barrier controlled car parks.
Please see ‘Torbay Hospital maps‘ for the Torbay Hospital site, car park locations and hospital zones as guidance for your visit to Torbay Hospital. Additional Pay and Display parking is available on the Trust’s Annexe site.
