Carparks in Thirsk – February 2024

For a parking map see HERE.

Electric car parking

There is a charging point adjacent to Thirsk Tourist Information. You must get a ticket from the machines, staying and paying the same as any other parking place. There are another two in the Millgate Car Park where you pay at the charging point. See also Electric Charging.

Disabled parking

If disabled, and able to display your Blue Badge, you can park in a marked disabled bay for as long as you wish – thre is no need to display a parking ticket from the machines. If all disabled bays are occupied you must park in an ordinary bay and get a parking ticket, but display your blue badge because that way you get an extra hour (e.g. in Thirsk Market Place that means 2 hours free, or 3 hours for £1.20).

Campervans & Caravans

If more than one marked space is occupied you need to pay for each space. No overnight sleeping is allowed, you must use a Caravan Park.
