Parking made easy
Information about parking near York Station
Parking around York station can be quite challenging, due to the busy narrow streets that make up the city as a result of its medieval layout. There are still many spaces on offer, though – both on-street and off-street – in order to serve the popular city centre, but prior knowledge of the best spots is certainly useful.
JustPark provides information on plenty of parking options nearby, many of which are reservable – including spaces on-street and off-street, from driveways to car parks.
On-street pay-and-display charges typically operate throughout York from 8am-6pm every day – and many of the streets surrounding the station are limited to paid-for parking only. Parking on-street near York station can be quite difficult as many of the surrounding roads are narrow busy bus routes, or completely pedestrianised as you move further into the centre. All pay-and-display spaces enforce a maximum stay of 2 hours before 3pm – but for the spaces that are available, charges are reasonably affordable.
