The free parking initiative is an incentive designed to encourage people to come to Boston to shop and eat out.

We hope this will provide a much needed boost to the economy and help to support local businesses during this challenging time. Visitors to the town will be able to park for free for 2.5 hours.

For the time being you can park for free without displaying a ticket whilst the machines are undergoing work. However, please check the ticket machines and signage in the car park, as you will soon need to obtain a free parking ticket upon arrival. Failure to display a ticket could result in a Penalty Charge Notice.

Free 2.5 hours parking for shoppers will be available in:
Bargate Green
Custom House Quay
Cattle Market
Botolph Street
Doughty Quay
West End
St George’s Road
Artillery Row
Maud Street
Buoy Yard
Victoria Place
George Street
Spayne Road
Tunnard Street
