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.

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.

Typical, isn't it?
Just about the only MH welcoming city in England & we have convenient relatives. :mm:


So cross the border and come to sunny Powys where I pay council tax, every town has at least one MHome friendly overnight car park. Come quick CW we want your money!:D

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.

Are all the overnight parks in GJH's listing?

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)

It wasn't as empty as that when I was there in September. I had a dozen members of our French club with us. All of them enjoyed their first experience of an aire in the UK.

you can't get in on a sunday but you can get out

joe

Now open Sundays 9:00 am - 8:30pm, but it didn't used to be.

If you arrive too late to get in, have a word with the manager of the nearby pub - we've overnighted in his car park, on condition we bought food there.

Another alternative is the large set back lay-by along the A2 in the direction of Dover, beside Kent Motorcycles (51.193642, 1.185807). Popular with truckers so it's unlikely you'd be out there on your own. We've stopped there too.

We have no specific plans, we'll be "ambling", but will call on your knowledge & experience if needed, thank you.
