Car Parks in St Ives

Parking in St Ives is at a premium, many of the self catering properties in the town do not have allocated parking so guests will find that they are asked to park in one of the public car parks.

During high season, changeover days of Friday and Saturday are particularly chaotic in the Town so ignore the challenge of trying to park if you are a casual visitor on these days. A walk into town is far more therapeutic and there is always the train to Porthminster or local bus to the Malakoff just above Porthminster beach.

Properties offered in St Ives by Carbis Bay Holidays have at least one parking space, if we cannot help with additional parking or you are visiting the town, the following map may help you choose the most convenient car park.

Some of the car parks are short stay only, some are long stay and weekly tickets can be purchased.

Porthminster Beach and Station Car Park – closest car park to Gallinas Point and The Peninsula Apartments, long stay and weekly tickets available. Streetmap link

The Sloop Inn Car Park – The Wharf, extremely busy to access and to park in high season, good option as a short stay in low season – Streetmap link

Porthmeor Beach and The Tate Gallery – popular with surfers so usually busy all year round – Streetmap link

Barnoon Car Park – long stay – above Porthmeor Beach and handy for The Tate and Town – Streetmap link

Porthgwidden and The Island – best approached from Porthmeor, convenient but tricky to find and busy in summer. Not to be confused with the permit holder parking adjacent to the beach – Streetmap link

Trenwith Car Park – long stay – convenient for the Town, steep walk back ! – Streetmap link

The Stennack Car Park – close to the shops and St Ives Town centre – Streetmap link

The Leisure Centre Car Park – the largest in St Ives with buses linking to various parts of the Town – Streetmap link

Visitors can purchase a weekly ticket on arrival at any long stay car park for £47.00 either directly from the pay and display machine using £1 or £2 coins, the RingGo Card Payment service or from the attendants on duty at the Island or Trenwith Car Parks.

St Ives Premier Long Stay Car Park – offering an invaluable service, especially for those with larger vehicles, ensuring you a space at all times. For more information please visit
