Tunbridge Wells Parking
All the information you need is right here.
Spoilt for choice!
Royal Tunbridge Wells, the town, has 13 car parks centrally located near the shops, parks and attractions, with blue badge (disabled) parking in all. Motorcycles are well catered for too.
All the towns and villages have their own car parks, so driving out then going for a ramble round the pretty rural areas is not a problem.
Beyond Royal Tunbridge Wells, there are 13 more Council-run car parks and numerous others, some free, some pay and display.
Disabled drivers or blue badge holders will find a total of 93 spaces available to them in the Town Centre Car Parks and a handful on the street too.
The charge? Free of course.
Read the Car Parks page for the best place to park in Tunbridge Wells according to your needs.
Motorcyclists can park for free in designated bays in the Royal Tunbridge Wells car parks of Crescent Road, Great Hall, Little Mount Sion, Meadow Road, Royal Victoria Place and Torrington...There is no time limit in the appropriate bays either.
Delving around for the correct change is a thing of the past with PayByPhone. You can extend your time from the shops or the café leaving you free to linger, browse more, chat more...
As well as this, PayByPhone is also cheaper than paying with coins.
On-street parking is very busy and not so easy to achieve in our lively town plus the PayByPhone option in the Car Parks makes it so much easier to avoid watching the clock.
We recommend you register on the website PayByPhone before going out.
Once at your car park of choice, look for the location number of the car park on the signs and simply make the local rate call to pay, there is a service charge for each call of 20p. Alternatively use the app or website to pay.
Although there is no ticket to display, the Civil Enforcement Officers patrolling have all the details on their handheld machines.
However, if you’re a visitor to the area, don’t worry the traditional coin machines are still in use.
We urge you to carefully check the price list on the boards. One is for the PayByPhone and one is for cash payments at the machine.
Stopping to Explore is Stress-Free
Those with special access requirements should check with the venue directly to be sure.
Many of the villages do have narrow, windy roads, the nature of our heritage; so on-street parking is not to be relied upon.
Not to worry as most villages have at least a village hall car park which can be used.
So there is nothing stopping you from getting out and about, look at all the things you can do right now!
Coaches have a designated parking zone, more information is on the Coach Parks page.
