Colchester Car Parking

There’s so much on offer in Colchester to keep families from across the Borough and visitors to the town entertained, whatever the weather. Fantastic parking offers in the Council’s easy-to-find, award-winning car parks across the town centre are available to help save money whatever the visit.



For a short stay to join one of the many crafts, storytelling and other family activities at venues across Colchester, get four hours parking any time after 9.30am in Britannia and Vineyard Street for £2.50. Or enjoy an evening meal and catch the latest cinema blockbuster, theatre or comedy show with the weekday £2 special offer for parking after 6pm in St Mary’s, with its unrivalled location and easy access to the town centre.


Families can make a day at Colchester Castle, enjoy great events in Castle Park come rain or shine, or hit Colchester’s specialist shops and big-name stores for a summer bargain. St John’s car park is the perfect choice at just £3.50 Monday to Friday all day and on Sunday its great value at only £1 in Britannia and Vineyard Street for easy access via a lift straight into Eld Lane and Lion Walk Shopping Centre.


There’s a perfect parking deal for every visit.


Cllr Mike Lilley, Colchester Borough Council Portfolio Holder forPublic Safety and Licensing, said: “We want Colchester to continue to have a thriving town centre, and success relies on good-quality and easy-to-access town centre parking. I’m pleased that over the last year we have been able to upgrade all our pay and display machines to accept contactless, ApplePay and MiPermit payment options and have fully refurbished Priory Street Car Park.


“Vineyard Street Car Park is the perfect location for those wanting to access the town centre directly via the lift. It seems to get some negative press every now and again due to minor breakdowns of the lift, but our figures clearly show in the last 11 months it has only been out of use for a total of 14 hours, which I think is good for a highly used facility.”
