Latest Ilkley parking reviews
This space is definitely only for 'medium' or smaller cars due to the railings, and leaving access to the stairs. My Nissan Leaf was slightly overhanging into the footpath, but not causing a blockage and I would park here again.. Very handy for Ilkley town centre (5 min walk) or a walk along the river ( there is a cut through at the bottom of Alexandra Crescent before the road bears left). I paid £2 for 4 hours which was half the price of the town centre car park (and saved having to download another parking app and the associated hassle). Other street parking was available for £2 but restricted to 2 hours. The hedge could do with a trim to make getting in and out of the drivers door easier ;-)Mark
