Visitor Parking

All Visitors to Whitley must use the Jaguar Land Rover Park and Ride service from Coventry Airport, Automotive House, Rowley Road, CV3 4PY. If you are using satellite navigation it may be more helpful to input ‘Rowley Road, Coventry’ as the destination.

At the entrance to Coventry Airport, you will be directed to a parking space and the Jaguar Land Rover Reception Point by the local security officer.

Reception Point

On arrival, you will be asked to show your Valid Government Issued Photo ID so Business Protection can book you in. You will be given a Visitor Pass which should be clearly displayed throughout your time with us. At this time Business Protection will inform you of the next available Shuttle Bus to Whitley and show you where you can wait.

You will need to show the Shuttle Bus driver your Visitors Pass to board the bus and then follow any direction given by the driver. Seatbelts should be worn at all times.

The Shuttle Service will take approximately 10 minutes to get to the Whitley site but time may vary at peak travel times. On arrival at Whitley, the Shuttle will enter the site through the main gate drop you at the Shuttle Bus stop inside the site. Once off the Shuttle, please use the crossing points to move safely to Main Reception.

On arrival Business Protection will ask you to sign in while they contact your host to come to collect you.

While on Site

The Whitley site is a large complicated facility so you must follow your host’s instructions with regards to your health, safety and wellbeing. If at any point you are unsure, you must ask for help.

Photography is strictly prohibited without a Business Protection issued permit.

At the end of your visit

Your host will escort you back to Main Reception where you will be asked to sign out before boarding the Shuttle Bus back to Coventry Airport. Shuttle Buses are running continually but if you are slightly early, seating is available in Main Reception.
