Like most modern towns, Torquay is no different in that parking can sometimes be a tricky operation. But thankfully, for Christmas at least, it has just got cheaper.
Torquay's biggest shopping centre is offering £1 parking to customers during December weekends. After Fleet Walk unveiled its Christmas lights last week, the council has announced a return of its 'Park for a Pound' scheme for weekends in December. And so the shopping centre has signed up to the initiative, meaning shoppers will also be able to park all day for £1 in Fleet Walk car park.
Parking for a pound gets under way next Friday and will run every weekend during the month including Boxing Day and December 27. The promotion means one £1 ticket purchased in any of Torbay Council's pay and display car parks after 6pm on a Friday evening in December will be valid right up until 10am on the following Monday.
Another good reason to visit Torquay - as if you needed one.
