We are responsible for the running and upkeep of Penlee Car Park (located next to Penlee Park).

Long stay parking in Penzance

Our car park has 141 spaces, including 4 spaces for Blue Badge holders.  Blue Badge holders benefit from 3 hours free parking.

A 24hr ticket costs £1.90

Our payment machines only take the correct change (5 pence and up).  One ticket machine is located at the entrance of the car park and the other on the lower level outside the Penzance Tennis Club.

All income from the car park is used to maintain the gardens and buildings within Penlee Park as well as the car park itself.

Please note: users of our car park do so at their own risk. We cannot accept liability for any accidents, damage or loss to vehicles or other property.  Charges may be subject to annual review.
