An excellent initiative from York City Council. The park and ride caters not only for cars, but has motorhome parking too.

Motorhome parking in York is provided at six “park and ride” sites located on the outskirts of the city. Each of these sites offers a dedicated parking area for motorhomes. A low-cost bus ticket is available to the city centre, hence avoiding the hardship of trying to park in York itself.
The six park and ride sites around York are located as follows.
- Poppleton Bar park and ride site – just off the A59 – ideal for visiting York from Harrogate and the A59.
- Rawcliffe Bar – to the north west of York, just off the A19
- Monks Cross – to the north east of York, off the A1036. Close to the shopping outlet with big name stores, plus a Sainsbury and ASDA close by.
- Grimston Bar – to the east of the city, ideal when arriving from Hull, Bridlington and the east coast.
- Designer Outlet – as the name suggests, a shopping outlet site, just off the A19 when coming from Selby
- Askham Bar – recently relocated and extended, just off the A64, so ideal for visitors from Leeds and West Yorkshire.
In recent weeks, the Kon-tiki has frequented Poppleton Bar and also Askham Bar parking and ride sites. Both offer generous sizes spaces for Motorhome parking in York
Motorhome parking in York – the price?
First Bus operate the buses from the park and rides sites and the run on a regular basis. There are more details of the park and ride sites, full address and pricing available on this link.
Noteworthy of a mention is that overnight parking is not allowed at any of the park and ride areas. Maybe York could take a lead from the examples at Chester and Canterbury?
