Motorhome Parking in Surrey.

The information is presented by local authority area.


Surrey County Council; Parking Page. The council intends to add information on motorhomes as part of the next web site review. This is likely to include general advice on good motorhome parking practice, and the County Council's responsibilities and activity in that regard.

Ash Parish Council; Home Page. The following reply was received to an enquiry made on 8 January 2016: "I'm afraid that our car parks will not be suitable as they have height barriers that would make it impossible for motorhomes to access them."

Elmbridge Borough Council; Parking Page; The web site used to include Motorhome Parking Information on a car parks page but the page has since been removed. Height restrictions are noted against applicable car parks in the details accessible via the "Search for a car park" link but the requirement to park wholly within a bay probably precludes motorhome parking. Best advice to anyone needing to park is to make a specific enquiry of the council before doing so.

Sandown Park Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council; Parking Page. See note towards the foot of the page "Our public car parks cannot accommodate motorhomes.".

Epsom Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.

Guildford Borough Council; Parking Page; Park & Ride Page. The council is not publishing Motorhome Parking information on its parking pages as the web was recently streamlined to only display the data accessible to the majority of users. The council is happy to provide information if requested direct to parking@guildford.gov.uk (Stated 6 September 2013).

Mole Valley District Council; Parking Page. The car park pages for each of the four towns of Ashtead, Bookham, Dorking and Leatherhead carry the note "Please note we do not provide facilities for motorhomes in any of our car parks."

Reigate & Banstead Council; Parking Page. The council currently has no plans to publish details of motor home parking on its web site (Stated 2 October 2013). The TRO indicates that vehicles must be completely within a marked bay and makes no provision for use of multiple bays. Best advice to anyone needing to park is to make a specific enquiry of the council before doing so.

Runnymede Borough Council; Parking Page. A majority of the council's car parks are subject to barrier controlled height restrictions of 7’6 which would prevent access to most motor homes. Under the off street parking order there is a prohibition of ‘camping, sleeping and cooking’ in all of the car parks. There are two car parks suitable for motor homes in the Borough. Runnymede Pleasure grounds, which is a payment car park, mostly without marked bays (this has no height barrier but is closed at night) and Coopers Hill car park, which is a free car park with no height barrier. The council intends to place a note about motor homes on the web site, which is currently under complete overhaul, when it is up and running, understood to be planned to be the end of 2013 (Stated 1 November 2013).

Thorpe Park. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 22 September 2013 but no reply has been received.

Spelthorne Council; Parking Page. The Council has stated (30 September 2013) that its car parks are not accessible for drivers of motor caravans/homes.

Kempton Park Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.

Surrey Heath Council; Car Parks Page. See motorhome parking information at the foot of each page.

Tandridge District Council; Car Parks Page. There are notes at the top of the page - No vehicles over two metres in height (including any load) may use these car parks due to height barriers. No caravans or motor homes may use these car parks. No trailers may use these car parks.

Lingfield Park Race Course. An enquiry regarding motorhome parking was sent on 28 January 2014.

Waverley Council; Parking Page. Unfortunately many Waverley owned car parks do not permit motor homes to park. This is because the spaces in town centres where the majority of our car parks are have spaces that are designed for standard cars. In addition due to the sizing of the car parks the manoeuvring of motorhomes would be very difficult and may cause hazards to pedestrians. However, permits may be purchased for Meadrow car park, in Godalming, and is around a 15 minute walk to the town centre. (Stated 30 September 2013).

Rural Life Centre, Old Kiln Museum Trust, Reeds Road, Tilford, Surrey, GU10 2DL. Response to an enquiry received 24 January 2016: " It is possible for people with motorhomes to park here if they wish to use our cafe and/or visit our museum. However if it is a large group of motorhomes, it I would advise that someone rings to book space (we can open up a field area). We cannot allow night parking unless during one of our events that allows camping.".

Woking Council; Parking Page. The Council does not have any specific provision for motorhome parking and the majority of available parking is designed for standard motor vehicles with larger bays provided for disabled motorists. All the town centre car parks have a 2.1m height limit and standard parking bays as detailed on the Councils website. There are no plans in the short or medium term to publish information on the website and advice is that motorhome drivers should contact the council in advance where they have specific requirements. (Stated 30 September 2013).
