Latest Boston parking reviews
First time booking for this car park and I will most definitely be doing it again! It was very easy to find and I loved the fact I could amend my booking once I had already booked. I was able to change the vehicle registration on there, as we had a change of plan last minute which vehicle we was taking and I was also able to amend my time so my slot started earlier, it was fantastic really! Perfect place to park too with just a short walking distance to get into the market place, and the cinema and other shops being even closer!Kim
