Latest Brecon parking reviews
What a fantastic system, so easy to book, cheap, it takes all the worry out of parking the car when you get to Brecon. So easy to find, right bang in the middle of Brecon, come and go when you want too. Fantastic.Paul
Very pleased, saves time & money. Will be definitely using again in the future. Thanks for a great service !!!Robert
Great parking space.ThanksDimitar
This car park is about a 10 -15 min walk to town centre where parking is scarce ! Returning from town entails an up hill walk. Good value for money. My only concern is this is a pay and display car park, so I have no idea how a pre paid spot can be reserved !,,,R
Excellent service. Booking on-line very easy. Car left over-night. Came back the next day to find it as I left it. My colleague and I have no reservations about recommending this service to others. I will be using it again. Thank youSan
Bargain at £3 for 24 hours when looking at the normal rates advertised inthe car park. Very central. Would use again.Alain
An excellent option for parking in Brecon if your accommodation does not provide car parking. I found the process online easy and quick to complete (using a social media account). It is close to the town centre but probably good to drop off luggage first as there is a hill to navigate.Cecily
This is a quiet car park, and there was sufficient space for me. A lovely town, do visit!Jane
