Parking is available next door at St Stephen's Shopping Centre multi-storey car park, accessible via Portland Place off Ferensway. Upon entering the car park, take a ticket from the machine and drive through the barrier. Drive to the back of the car park towards the entrance to the Holiday Inn Express. You will see a sign for Hull Truck Theatre, by which there is direct lift access to the square approx. 50m from the entrance of the Theatre.

There are five disabled parking bays close to the lift, on Level 2 (two on Level 3), which are charged at the normal daily rate, or just £1 after 5.30pm – 11.59pm, Mon - Sat and £2 all day Sunday.

Alternatively, there are five disabled parking bays on Portland Street, by the entrance to the multi-storey car park, which are free for blue badge holders. These spaces are to the rear of the theatre, approx. 150m from the main entrance and have no time limit.
