    Does anyone know the overnight charge for motorhomes and do I need change for a machine or is there an office on site to pay at.

    If memory serves correctly, it's £3 for 24 hours - and includes bus into Canterbury centre.
    The payment machine is next to the bus stop - you can't miss it.
    Pub at the entrance that apparently does decent food.

    If I remember rightly from last year, the machine takes notes and gives change.

    Machine at bus terminal takes cash and credit.
    Pub at entrance is a no for dogs.
    Handy stopover for tunnel.

    We can vouch for the food in the pub being OK too, and some lovely draught cider.

    Graham is correct about the ticket machine.

    Wifey and I drove up there from Dover to give Gerty a little run out. We parked up amonst the foreign vans, all empty, and went into the city on the bus for a wander. Came back had a cuppa, drove home. Day out mileage 28 miles cost less fuel £3. They are doing it right as the other people had gone into town an spent some money there. Win Win situation. Pity I cannot persuade Dover Council to do the same.

    We stayed at the Canterbury P&R in September, ideal place to park up while you wait to head to tunnel. The bus terminal and pay machine are just a few yards away and as an added bonus, Canterbury is a great city to visit.

    We wanted to use it last October but was told the barrier closes at 8.00pm, couldnt get there before 10.00pm so had to give it a miss,shame as handy for tunnel.

    According to the Council website no entry after 20.30 but you can leave any time. Details here.

    Thanks for the information & the offer BB.
    I checked your link & had a browse around the council website & came across the same page that Graham links to - Thanks @GJH

    CW, it's the detail and local knowledge that might be of more use to you... eg. top end of Crickhowell car park is on a slope and no levellers known to man/womankind will assist! Also on Friday/Saturday nights full of boy racers and other twits. The Brecon parks are good particularly the one down the prom. Any night in Feb and you'll have it to yourselves. Hay is good and I think the toilets are open 24/7 though that may only be in the summer months.
    Anything else local I will help if I can.(y)
