The Christmas lights have been put up in the town centre and from what we saw this morning so have the winter parking prices.

The winter parking charges are often less than those that locals pay during the summer time.

However this year those winter parking charges are on the rise.

Car Parking Charges in Torbay – Winter 2018/2019

Hopefully, you’re sitting down and are prepared for the unveiling of the charges.

Here we go

Short stay (maximum of 3 hours covering from 8am to 6pm)

Time Cost
Up to 30 minutes £0.60 (Brixham Central only)
Up to 2 hours £1.40
Up to 3 hours £2.50
Up to 4 hours £3.50
Overnight (available 6pm to 8am) £3

Long Stay car parks

Time Cost
Up to 1 hour £1.40
Up to 2 hours £2.50
Up to 3 hours £3.50
Up to 4 hours £4.50
Up to 5 hours £5.50
Up to 6 hours £6.50
Up to 24 hours £8.00
Overnight (available 6pm to 8am) £3.00

Comparing these car parking charges to those of the summer there isn’t much difference.

New options have been added including  a 6 hour ticket, but Torbay Council have also removed the 30 minute stay and the  1.5 hour stay options.

A 24 hour ticket in a long stay car park will now cost you £2 less than in the summer.

Commercial Vehicle Charges

Time Cost
Up to 1 hour £5.00
Up to 4 hours £10.00
Up to 24 hours £15.00
Weekly £65.00


There has been no changes for commercial vehicles.

As always car parking permits are available if you do want to save a few pennies at the meter.

The new car parking charges came into force on the 1st November and will be with us until the Summer 2019.

  1. I have just spent 10 days in Paignton but I will now never come back for another holiday as the car parking charges have made my wife and myself virtual prisoners,(we are both blue badge holders) on our campsite, If we go out during the day Minimum £5 for parking, go for a meal in Brixham in the evening at least another £3.50 parking on top of the cost of our meal albeit the carpark is empty or go to Goodrington park for a walk and maybe a drink at least €2,50 I for one am sick of greedy apathetic grasping Councils who ruin people’s holidays many who are on a tight budget and could do with some help from the councils when they choose to spend their money on holidays in this country. I love the English Riviera but enough is enough, Hope to go to Torcross tomorrow so I’d better get my car parking war chest filled with enough pound coins and silver to ensure a couple of expensive hours in the car park there
