Free parking for Christmas shoppers in Warwick district

FREE parking is on offer for festive shoppers in Warwick district.

Warwick District Council is offering free parking in all 27 of its car parks on Sundays in the run up to Christmas in order to give town centre businesses a boost.

This includes all council run off-street surface and multi-storey car parks in Kenilworth, Leamington and Warwick.

There’s also a bonus for weekend shoppers visiting Leamington, with the opening of the council’s Riverside House car park for free parking on Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas Eve.

WDC’s economy spokesman Coun Liam Bartlett said: “In challenging times, we would like to lend our support to both residents and high street businesses this festive season. We very much hope that local people will be able to take advantage of the free parking available and support our wonderful range of shops, cafes and restaurants and also come out to enjoy some special events taking place including the Lantern Parade and Christmas markets.”

Stephanie Kerr, Executive Director of BID Leamington, added: “We are pleased to see these parking initiatives which we hope will support visitors and those working in town at weekends. There is a wonderful range of free festive activities going on to enjoy and every little gesture like this helps. Local businesses also value our support, and we know there is lots to discover – from stocking stuffers and practical pressies, to that special gift.

“Delivering an enjoyable Christmas is a team effort and we look forward to continuing our discussions with Warwick District Council to ensure we can offer customer and employee friendly parking in the year ahead.”
