Helmsley introduces free overnight motorhome parking

The North Yorkshire town of Helmsley has said it welcomes motorhomes and has proved it by creating six free overnight motorhome parking spaces

Situated in the long stay Cleveland Way car park, within the overflow section, the spaces will be available for up to six motorhomes free of charge from 6.30pm to 9am.

“We’re delighted to now have six overnight motorhome parking spaces, which are totally free of charge between 6.30pm and 9am,” said Carolyn Frank, member of the Helmsley in Business group that pushed for the spaces to be made available.

“Our aim is to make parking more flexible, affordable and practical for visitors – as a local business owner, we know how frustrating it can be for people who want to make more of their trip to the town, but feel like they have to rush off. With the introduction of the motorhome spaces, free coach parking and ‘pop in to shops’ 20 minute parking spaces in the town centre, hopefully we’re helping everyone to be able to find a way to stop and make the most of our lovely town.”

The town team that achieved this is made up of all relevant local authorities, Helmsley Town Council, North Yorkshire County Council, Ryedale District Council and the North York Moors National Park as well as the Helmsley in Business Group. 

MMM magazine, which is Britain's best-selling motorhome magazine, will be producing a free motorhome parking guide with its September 2017 issue. If you're interested in learning where you can park up in towns throughout the UK, then this is the issue for you.
