In the summer months Newquay is really popular so parking is limited. Parking spaces are subject to availability and we suggest arriving before peak hours. Forgotten some spare change? It happens to the best of us! Most car parks will allow you to purchase tickets through the JustPark App. This is a website and phone service that allows you to pay for parking in the majority of Cornwall Council car parks. The best thing about paying through the app is that you can ‘top up’ your ticket time online.
