Introduction of new parking tariffs at Royal William Yard
Posted on: 06 Oct 2022
Changes have been made to our visitor parking rates. Now, everyone bringing a vehicle to Royal William Yard will need to pay to park when they arrive. Having held rates at the same level for five years, we are updating our prices while keeping cost increases as low as possible.
We know Royal William Yard is a great spot to pop for a sea swim or dog walk, so to better support short stays, we are introducing a 1 hour parking rate. For those visiting for longer stays, we have introduced new 5 hour and 12 hour rates. To provide plenty of flexibility, you have options ranging from 1 hour right up to 24 hours.
All parking rates have been updated and new signs have been installed around the Yard to guide you. Brighter, reflective signage provides all the information you need, and you have the option to pay online or with the PayByPhone app – we provide links, QR codes, and a phone number on signs.
Please note that disabled motorists should pay to park, and must display a blue badge if using the disabled parking bays. We offer 11 dedicated disabled parking bays, and if these are occupied, drivers are welcome to use any other visitor spaces at the Yard.
Motorcyclists also need to pay for parking in the new changes, but we have introduced a rate starting from 75p, please see the tariff signs details. Cyclists do not pay to park at the Yard and there is plenty of lock-up space for bikes.
The parking facilities at the Yard are managed by SIP Car Parks and this includes the issuing of any Parking Charge Notices. Going forward, Parking Charge Notices will be sent out by post and the Yard will become Automatic Number Plate Recognition camera controlled.We encourage anyone planning a trip to Royal William Yard to explore the many ways they can visit us, including green travel options like car sharing, public transport, cycling and walking – you can even reach the Yard by ferry.
