The National Park Authority manages around 40 car parks and parking areas; we charge on 14 of these and use the income to help us maintain the car parks and paths in the Park.
The charging period runs from 15 March to 7 November (inclusive). During this period all vehicles must display either a valid Pay and Display ticket, a pre-purchased Season Ticket or purchase a digital ticket via PayByPhone. Charging hours run from 9am to 7pm at each site.
Outside of the charging period, we offer free parking on all Authority charging car parks for four months each year, from early November to mid-March.
We also offer 30 minutes free parking (60 minutes for Blue Badge holders) across all of our charging car parks during the charging period.
Pay and Display Charges on-site (cash only)
- Up to 30 minutes: £0 (no return within 4 hours)
- Up to one hour: £1
- Up to two hours: £2
- Up to three hours: £3
- Over three hours: £5
- Seven days: £30
(Blue Badge holders must pay but will receive an additional hour of parking)
People who don’t wish to use the existing on-site coin machines will be able to use PayByPhone via an app, text, a phone call or online.
Motorists will need to be aware that use of PayByPhone from the car parks will depend on network coverage, which will vary depending on the location and your provider. While you may wish to pay before travelling to the car park, this does not guarantee a space will be available. For additional support please visit the PayByPhone website.

Any vehicles that are not displaying a valid Pay and Display ticket, pre-purchased ticket or have not purchased a digital ticket via PayByPhone are liable to receive a fixed penalty notice as our charging car parks are regularly patrolled by Parking Enforcement Officers. Please see on-site signs for full terms and conditions.
Sleeping overnight in a vehicle is not permitted in the Authority’s car parks. This can be enforced with a fixed penalty notice. If you have need of overnight accommodation, please use local accommodation facilities and consider the impact on the environment and the local community.

Guidance for poor connection spots (e.g. Freshwater East):
Dragon Charging recommend registering an RFID card at another Dragon Charging location to mitigate the need for the App or website when using a site with a poor signal.
Please refer to the FAQ’s on the Dragon Charging website (opens in a new window)
You can register any existing RFID card on to the DragonCharging network. To register a card, take your card to your nearest DragonCharging network charger and follow the instructions below:
- Login to your DragonCharging account
- Select My Account from the main menu
- Go to RFID Card
- Tap on Register
- Follow the on-screen instructions
You can now start using your chosen RFID card at all DragonCharging network charge points.
