Car parks

Free parking

You can park for free at our car parks and on-street pay and display bays during each Saturday in December. We have also arranged free parking for 32 spaces at King Street car park in Stanford-le-Hope throughout December and the New Year period.

Off-street car parks

Our off-street car parks are all pay-and-display. You must buy a ticket for the required amount of time you need. Pay-and-display parking machines cannot accept 5p, 2p or 1p coins.

All pay-and-display parking machines accept payment by debit card or credit card.

When paying by cash, it is the driver's responsibility to make sure they have the right amount of money – the machines give no change and no time is allowed to find change.

Charges and instructions are displayed with all pay-and-display machines. A phone number will be displayed if there's a problem with the machine.

Grays town centre is a controlled parking zone that has both off-street car parks and on-street pay-and-display parking.
