Motorhome parking in Chester is well catered for. Located just outside the city walls, you will find the Little Roodee car park, which has oversized spaces for coaches and lorries. Alongside the River Dee, and opposite the racecourse, you can walk into Chester city centre in no time at all. As a result this is a popular choice for motorhomers.

In order to avoid confusion on any future visits, I sent an email to Cheshire West and Chester council. Their reply is here, along with my questions, relating to the Little Roodee site.

At the Little Roodee car park, where is the best place to park a motorhome?

You can park in the larger “coach/lorry” bays providing you pay the relevant “coach” tariff shown on the notice boards. If you park in the “normal” bays you should pay the “motor vehicle” rate for each bay occupied.

The tariff board at the car park.

What tariff applies?

See above

If we arrive mid afternoon and want to stay overnight in the car park, in the motorhome, is that possible, providing of course the relevant fee is paid?

Yes, the car park is secured at overnight (however the vehicle is parked at the owner’s risk)

The council went on to say…

We do allow overnight parking at our Park and Ride sites, (each of which has an overheight area), however there are currently no toilet facilities. We are making improvements to the facilities at all of these sites in the summer.

I then contacted the council again and asked for details of the Park and Ride sites and the tariff. I was referred to this link which contains all you need to know about motorhome parking in Chester. The gates to the Little Roodee car park are locked at night, but the car park signs give details of an emergency contact.

Motorhome parking in Chester – any more takers?

Chester seems to be another forward thinking council, along with Fylde and Canterbury, surely there must be some more? There are a few more listed in the Europe Camperstop book.
