Council car parks

The council operates a number of car parks across Herefordshire amounting to around 4,514 off-street parking spaces. There are also an estimated 1,600 controlled (generally by limited waiting) on-street parking spaces.

Changes to car parking charges

We will be making some changes to our car park tariffs from 27 February 2017. There will also be a change to the method of operation in Maylord Orchard car park. For full details view the notice of variation of car park charges.

On 16 June 2014 we made an Off-Street Parking Places Consolidation Order 2014. You can view this document in the document area on this page.

Can I buy a season ticket for council car parks?

We issue annual and quarterly season discs for some car parks in Hereford, Kington, Ledbury, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye.

These discs don't guarantee you a space, but they save you money if you use the car parks every day - and you don't have to buy a pay and display ticket.

An annual disc saves you even more money than a quarterly disc.

Off peak season tickets

You can purchase an off peak season ticket for Hereford which can be used for parking in eligible council car parks between 6pm and 8am.

Where can I park my coach?

Hereford

The main dropping off point for visitors and tourists is the coach bay on Broad Street, close to Hereford Cathedral.

There are two car parks suitable for coach parking in Hereford:

  • Merton Meadow car park where there are no marked bays but this is a large car park where there is generally room for coaches. This car park is adjacent to the Hereford United football ground and you should use this car park if you are bringing football supporters
  • St Martins car park is just south of the river and quite close to the dropping off point for tourists and visitors to the city. It has four bays marked out specifically for coaches and is adjacent to Hereford Leisure Pool

Directions from St Martins car park to Broad Street

Turn right out of St Martins car park onto St Martins Street going over the old bridge, follow the road round to the left and ensure you are in the right hand lane at the traffic lights. Turn right onto the A49 (Victoria Street) up to the next set of traffic lights. Proceed to the roundabout where you need to go all the way around heading back on yourself on the A49 towards Ross for around 200 metres, ensure you are now in the left hand lane. Take the second turning on the left into West Street and proceed to the junction with Broad Street, turn right and the coach dropping off/picking up bay is close to the cathedral on the left hand side.

Leominster

There are four marked coach bays on Broad Street car park which is a few minutes away from the town centre.

Ross-on-Wye

Red Meadow car park is recommended and has space for up to three coaches in the coach parking area. It is close to the town centre and leisure facilities including the swimming pool.

Homs Road car park has 14 marked coach bays but has a height barrier with the key available from the nearby fitness centre.

Coach drivers are advised to use Red Meadow car park if possible.

Ledbury and Kington

There are no coach bays on the car parks.

Where can I park my lorry?

Hereford

Merton Meadow car park is suitable for lorries to park and stay overnight although there are no on-site facilities.

Leominster

Broad Street car park is suitable for lorries to park from 6pm to 8am although there are no on-site facilities. The car park does not have any marked lorry bays and is not available for lorries in the day time (8am to 6pm) when it is used mainly by commuters.

Where can I park my motor home?

Although we do not have any specific parking bays for motor homes in our car parks we do allow motor homes to use the car parks, although some car parks are more suitable than others.

If your motor home cannot fit into a single parking bay please ring the parking section on 01432 260974 to get the appropriate advice which may depend on circumstances at that time.

Where there are marked parking bays and your vehicle takes up more than one bay, you should purchase a ticket for each bay.

The following car parks are suitable for motor home parking:

Hereford

Merton Meadow car park north of the river and adjacent to the football ground does not have any marked bays. It is a five to ten minute walk to the city centre. 

St Martins overflow car park by the leisure facilities south of the river has marked bays but generally plenty of room. 

Avoid the multi storey and Maylord Orchard car parks (both have low head room).

Ross-on-Wye

Red meadow car park by the swimming pool and close to the town centre.

Avoid Homs Road and the Wilton Road car parks due to height barriers.

Ledbury

Lawnside Road car park by the leisure facilities and a five minute walk into the town centre. 

Avoid Bye Street and Bridge Street car parks as both have limited space to manoeuvre.

Leominster

Broad Street or Dishley Street car parks, both a short walk into the town centre. 

Kington

Mill Street car park.

Can I use my foreign blue badge?
