Whilst the majority of cars are compliant with the CAZ we strongly recommend you check your car’s status and read our facts below.”
Cabot Circus Car Park sits within the Bristol Clean Air Zone (CAZ).
The Newfoundland Entrance/Exit (which is the Main Entrance to the car park) and the Bond Street South Exits are all within the Clean Air Zone and using these entrances or exits will take you through the CAZ.
Our car park Entrance on Houlton Street is outside the CAZ – But ONLY if you turn right (towards Lawrence Hill) which leads you away from the CAZ. If you turn left at this exit you will enter into the CAZ.

If your vehicle is compliant
If your vehicle is fully compliant with the CAZ there is no charge and drivers can use any entrance/exit.
If your vehicle is not compliant
If your vehicle is not compliant and you enter or exit the car park via the CAZ you will have to pay the daily charge. Equally, if you take a route through the CAZ to reach Cabot Circus you will also have to pay the charge, so we suggest you familiarise yourself with the map that shows the zone to help you plan your journey.
If your vehicle is not compliant and you enter and exit the car park outside of the CAZ (via Houlton Street and only by turning right towards Lawrence Hill upon exit) you will NOT have to pay the daily charge (depending on which route you take to reach Cabot Circus).
You have six days to pay the daily charge – you can pay up to six days before and six days after travel and can pay your charge on www.gov.uk/clean-air-zones or by calling 0300 029 8888.
