Hey,

I've recently started work in St Albans, to be specific...

Upper Marlborough Rd, St Albans, AL1

Can anyone provide me with a name of a road or post code in which I can park for free which is no more than a 15-20min walk from Upper Marlborough Road or Victoria Street.

I've been parking in the public car park, but £8 a day is starting to hurt! I tried looking for free parking today, but most areas closeby are permit holders or pay and display.

Please Help!

The cheapest I know is by the museum down Fishpool, which is 80p/day.

Thanks Sports Racer.

Someone has told me that there is free parking off the road - Sandpit Lane.

I will try looking tomorrow and get back to you...

I've attached the St Albans Council Parking Zones Map... may be of assistance to you guys..

I think it may be a little outdated tho!

I've lived in St Albans all my life, except when I was at uni/travelling. But I don't drive, so I'm not sure about free parking... try back streets, not St Peter's Street, Holywell Hill or those running off them?

nope; it's gone up to £3 now, since the summer :sadnod:

still better than your £8 a day though OP, you should probably look into this, it's a 10-15 minute walk from victoria street :yy:

Westminster Lodge swimming pool/St Albans Abbey theatre used to be free, you'd have to walk up the hill though.

I have a feeling that given this thread was made 9 years ago, they might have found a solution. :beard:
