The people who own this space were very accommodating, as we had booked for a time but we're going to arrive 15 early and they made us welcome by re-arranging their vehicle so we could park, and it was only 3-5 mins from the center of YorkKen
No issues , good stay for my car , close to train stationJugita
Found it really easy to find a space. Very close to centre of York. Advice was to park away from the sainsburys shop. This was easy to do. I was a bit concerned at first as its also a pay and display car park and was worried as not having a ticket to display. But all was good and no problemsLynn
