Car Parking For Royal Hotel

by jmjones Online Now Mar 22, 2010 at 3:51 AM

Hi all hope you can help?
I visit the Royal Hotel every year around the end of March for 2 nights, however, it costs around £15 to park in the car park which is about 5 minutes walk away. Does anyone know of a cheaper/free place to park 26/27th March?
Thanks in advance.

    I know there is lots of free on-street parking in Scarborough in the residential streets. I'll ask my mum for specific areas as she goes quite regularly.

    I haven't parked in Scarborough for decades, I'm afraid.

    There is a rather good clickable map of parking here:

    visitscarborough.com/parking...

    so you can check car parks near the hotel.

    Is the £15 charge is for the 'scratchcard' mentioned in the text on that page? You may have difficulty parking in residential streets within easy walking distance without one; it seems many are in a 'disc zone' (also mentioned in text).

    You can buy 2-7 day parking tickets when you arrive from the Tourist Info people, or phone them on 01723 232323 to get one in advance. Might be worth a phone call to see if an advance ticket costs less than £15.

    Hi, this is what my mum says;
    I think the Royal is not far from the Grand, where we stayed. We couldn't find any free parking, it was quite difficult to find any place to park near the hotel. We eventually went to the multistory car park near the main shopping street, it wasn't too expensive, they had a good 24 hour rate and we got a code from the hotel for a discount.
    Sorry about that, when we used to go we parked further away in the newer part of the town.
