People coming into Exeter on Thursday evenings will now be able to park for free in the City Council’s three pay-on-foot muti-storey car parks.

The offer, which starts tomorrow (Thursday 20 June), has been brought in to support Thursday late night shopping and the wider evening economy. It is also aimed at spreading the peak of Saturday shopping and easing congestion on the roads.

From tomorrow on Thursdays, people will now be able to park for free in the Guildhall, John Lewis and Mary Arches Street Car Parks after 6pm. Currently the free period doesn’t kick in until after midnight.

This offer starts tomorrow and will remain in place every Thursday for the remainder of the calendar year.
