What does it mean to be in a pedestrian zone?
To make sure you don’t end up with a fine in the city centre, read on to find out where you can drive, and when.
We have pedestrian zones to make it safer, more accessible and more appealing for shoppers in the city centre. Pedestrianised areas also have lower air pollution, are quieter, and look nicer. There are also economic benefits as more people buy from shops in pedestrian zones.
