Raby Road continues onto York Road and leads right into the town Centre. Once you reach the high street you can either turn left onto Victoria Road and then immediately right for car parking or continue along York Road, turning left at the next set of traffic lights and then left again, for lots more parking options, including underground parking (directly beneath the Market Hall).

Continue on the A689 all the way to Hartlepool, going straight over any roundabouts you encounter. Once you are (straight) over the bridge at the A19, go straight over the Wolviston roundabout with the garage and McDonalds etc on your left. Take the Hartlepool turnoff at the Billingham (next) roundabout and continue along the A689 to Hartlepool. You will come to the Tesco (on your right) roundabout, which you should again go straight over. Once at the next set of traffic lights you should go left up Park Road and then right into the main town centre car parks, including the underground parking (directly beneath the Market Hall).
