Would just like to know from those in the know about overnight parking in Newhaven? I know there is a site opposite the port, would like to know if there is any problems with parking over night.

On the sea front at Newhaven? I've never seen that, just followed the signs to the port. It could be handy now Tesco are reducing the coupons for the tunnel, that crossing back in contention for us.

Is there plenty of spaces or is it packed?

Empty. It would probably take 200 motorhomes. Check the photos. We parked parallel to the sea on hard standing. I think parking slightly at an angle would be better as the wind wouldn't impact as much. Definitely worth considering in my opinion.

It's on the seafront but perhaps not where you think. If you check the link you will see where it is. There's a pub serving what looks like decent food aswell about 50 yards away from the park up.

This is where we stayed when we last used the port and were advised to park here by the ferry staff in the ferry office. Two minutes from pubs. Our plan when we arrived was to park at the back of McDonalds where the HGV's park up overnight but not neseccerry. There are loads of places to park up for the night without having to pay.

Is it the west pier car park?, it used to be free when I fished off the pier many moons ago, but I see on Google it has a maned toll booth, plus a ruddy great Rig thing on stilts, there are also some MH's parked there, so I guess it must be the place. Pub up the road, The Hope Inn, also lets you stay if you dine with them I think, but never used it, as I am always driving.

Was there somebody there to move the height barrier?

I have a problem:unsure: what time do the barrier go up? I have a ferry to catch at 7am 26th Mar
Yes, there is someone living there in his van. He asked us what time we were leaving when we arrived. His van is about 20 yards from the barrier, so even if he slept in, it would only be a 5 min wait!!

If you mention to him the time if your ferry, he will either say yes or no I'm pretty sure! There is also a bit of a turning circle just outside the parking area, you could even just stay there at a pinch if you were concerned.

If you need to be there for a 7am ferry and assuming you need to be there 90 mins before, (didn't realise they ran at that time) he might just leave the barrier unlocked for you to move yourself?

Thanks. We only live about 25 miles away from Newhaven and were thinking of spending a couple of days by the seaside. May also use the ferry if we do not get a good deal from the tunnel for our autumn trip.
