Stratford District Council manage six 'Pay and Display' car parks in Stratford-upon-Avon town centre.

Pay and Display machines accept the following coins: 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. Some of the machines within the car parks will also accept £5 and £10 notes (with the exception of the Recreation Ground car park where no note are accepted).

Please note: Pay and Display machines do not give any change.

Instead of paying by cash, you may Pay by Phone using RingGo or, in the Recreation Ground car park, you can pay by debit or credit card (We hope to provide a pay by card option in all of our Pay and Display car parks in the near future).

The Pay and Display ticket indicates the expiry time/date, value of the ticket purchased, the Pay and Display machine number and car park location. This ticket must be clearly displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle, with the ticket information facing outwards.

If you find that the Pay and Display machine is not working, please use another machine. Faulty machines can be reported to Parking Services by phoning 0800 413685 (freephone number).
