on Fri, 16/11/2018 - 6:37pm

Motorists in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse can enjoy free parking in district council car parks on certain days in the run up to Christmas.

The annual free parking tradition is provided by South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents.   The free parking days allocated to each area are agreed with the individual town councils depending on which day would best suit local traders. 

Free Christmas parking days also mean people don’t have to pay to park if they wish to catch up with friends and family in the pubs, cafés and restaurants found across southern Oxfordshire’s towns during the festive period.

Drivers will be able to park without paying for a ticket in South and Vale car parks on the following days up to 24 December:

  • Abingdon – Saturdays from 1 December
  • Faringdon – Saturdays from 1 December
  • Wantage – Fridays from 30 November

South Oxfordshire

  • Didcot – Mondays from 3 December
  • Goring – Saturdays from 1 December
  • Henley – Tuesdays from 4 December
  • Thame – Saturdays from 1 December
  • Wallingford -Thursdays from 6 December

On the above days there’s no need to display a ticket.

Parking is also free on a Sunday in the town centre car parks, including the lower levels of the Charter car park in Abingdon.
