Parking in Blackburn

At the Cathedral

There is limited parking in the Cathedral Court if the gates are open. The access is from Dandy Walk. Head south on Darwen Street and turn left immediately before the Postal Order (J D Wetherspoons) just after you pass the Cathedral entrance. Access to Cathedral Court is via the iron gates on the left. If Cathedral Court is full or the gates are closed, you will need to use one of the town centre car parks.

Town Centre

There are many car parks in Blackburn town centre. Those closest to the cathedral include Weir Street, Mill Lane, Fleming Square, The Mall, Fielden Street multi-storey, Fielden Street Undercroft, and Morrisons. There is also a privately-owned car park next to Fleming Square.

The following website shows council car parks.
