We are responsible for public off-street car parks and offer a range of long and short stay parking facilities in Abingdon, Wantage and Faringdon.
All our car parks, except the Charter multi-storey are open 24 hours and operational between 8am and 6pm, which is the period when charges apply.
In pay and display car parks, between 8am and 6pm you will need to display a valid ticket, including for the free two hour period.
There is a no return policy to all of the pay and display car parks: once the vehicle leaves a car park it may only return to any one of the car parks within the town you are in within two hours if a charge is paid.
