Where to park in Grimsby Town Centre

Coming to the Makers Market at Grimsby Minster? If you’re looking at where to park in Grimsby Town Centre, then this is the blog post for you!

Is Parking free in Grimsby?

As Grimsby town centre has a lot of residential areas, there is a large amount of free street parking, however during busier times, particularly weekends, it can be difficult to find spaces. Plus, they don’t offer the security of designated parking areas, and most on-street parking is for a limited time only.

Please note: There is no free street parking outside the Minster, or on Bethlehem Street. On weekdays and Saturdays, on-street parking is only allowed on Wellowgate before 8 am and after 6 pm. However, you are free to park here on Sundays.
