Visitor Parking Permits

As our little Island gets busier through the coming months, it might be wise to consider purchasing a Visitor parking permit for the length of your stay. It will certainly be cheaper than paying a daily rate and will also take away the frantic search through pockets and car hidey-holes for change!

Visitor permits can be purchased for use in on and off street pay and display parking bays managed by the Isle of Wight Council for the following time periods.

Two days £11.50

Three days £17.75

Four days £22.75

Seven days £39.25

Isle of Arts Festival
