Coach Parking

Coach spaces are provided in The Railway Car Park. Spaces are for parking only, there are no designated set down / collection points.  Coaches must pay the coach tariff and are subject to a maximum 4 hour stay.

Disabled Parking

Disabled parking is available in both car parks though extremely limited in the Lawns. Disabled Parking cannot be guaranteed or reserved and during busy periods does fill up.  Drivers must ensure they display a valid disabled permit when parked in a disabled space.  There are no concessions and the appropriate parking fee must be paid.  The RingGo payment service provides an easy access alternative payment option to the car park ticket machines.

Motorhome Parking

Designated motorhome parking spaces are provided in the Railway Car Park. The fee for these spaces are the same as the standard car park fee.  When these spaces are full, motorhomes are permitted to park in coach spaces provided they pay the coach fee and adhere to the 4 hour maximum stay for a coach space.  Alternatively, motorhomes can park using more than one car space provided the driver pays for the number of spaces used and does not cause an obstruction to traffic.

Please note, there is no overnight parking provision for motorhomes and they are prohibited between 22:00 - 08:00.  For information regarding local campsites, please contact the Tourist Information Centre.

Motorhome parking is unsuitable in the Lawn’s Car Park.

Motorcycle Parking

There is no separate motorcycle fee and no designated motorcycle parking.  Motorcycles where parked in a parking space must pay the appropriate fee for that parking space and ensure the ticket is displayed in accordance with section 6.7 of The Padstow Town Council (Off-Street Parking Places) Order 2015.  More than one motorcycle can be parked in the same space provided that they fit within the delineation and do not cause an obstruction.
