Latest Clacton-on-Sea parking reviews
Lovely lady at the property, surprisingly letted us use her toilet facilities for my children after a 2hr journey for the air show. Very easy 20min straight walk to the pier. Chance to see arcades and shops whilst on walk route to the pier, made easier use of time. Suitable space for small-medium cars, advisable to reverse in only. It was on a very busy road that was difficult to see when pulling out. But it was a good idea to use as parking was outrageous at the pier that would have been a nightmare to find. Would definitely use again as peace of mind.Tonella
Easy to locate and close to seafront!Louisa
Easy to find. Near to the beach. A+Cezar
I found the parking space with no problems at all; using a sat nav ! The parking bay was clearly marked and there were only a few cars in the car park. I called the owner to check whether or not I needed a parking permit. He answered the phone promptly and politely. I didn't need a permit so I parked my car. The parking is a short walk to the beach and only a few minuets from the pier, perfect for my needs. Would defiantly use this parking again if it's available.Paul
So easy to find and right on the seafront. Affordable too. Thanks so much.Ellie
Brilliant location right on the sea front very handy if got 2 small children so can be difficult at times but this space really made it easy for a day at the beach thanksChris
