Free Car Parking Campaigns

Free Car Parking After 3

Free car parking to bring people into town at key times of the year.

Harrogate BID is aware of how important free parking is to our BID Members and the footfall it creates.

At key times of year, we work with Harrogate Borough Council to provide free car parking after 3pm in the Victoria Car Park. In 2022, there were 1,428 hours of FREE car parking used in the run up to Christmas.

Saturday Free Car Parking

Super Saturdays

Harrogate BID funded free weekend parking in January and February to give town centre retailers a welcome post-Christmas and New Year lift. Shoppers that were heading to Harrogate were able to park free of charge in Victoria Car Park on five Saturdays. The initiative aimed to support town centre businesses by giving people another incentive to come into the town.
