    Parking Your Car in Guernsey

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: As at May 2014 car parking is free all over the Island (unless otherwise shown). The main car parks in St Peter Port require you to display a disc card, which you can purchase from garages, or, as we did, from the local police station. The cost was £2.50. You just set the time on the card to your arrival time, and display it in your front window. Parking times vary, and those by the Marinas will be for 2 hours only, no return within 30 minutes. The main car park is at North Beach (by the large roundabout and flagstaff), where the parking areas are in sections from 10 hours to 2 hours, so ensure you are in the correct part for the length of your stay. Most of the long-term parking will be taken up by local people who work in the town (there's very little private parking for them!).

    At this time the Deputies of the Island have passed a plan to introduce parking charges, and quite how these will affect visitors is not yet clear. (The Islanders are up in arms about the idea, especially those who work and park in St Peter Port, who will now have to pay (perhaps) an annual fee).

    Elsewhere on the Island, car parking is (usually) free.

    Favorite thing: Drive down the Val de Terres (hope i spelt it right) for an exciting free journey, its great fun!

    Fondest memory: The Bridge, in Vale. Full of little shops selling anything and everything.
