Where can I park in Watford?

Pay and display parking sites

In the Controlled Parking Zone

Short stay pay and display parking is available on-street throughout the Controlled Parking Zone. These bays allow parking for a maximum of one hour to four hours, depending on the location. During the active hours of the bay, shown on the signage, motorists must purchase a ticket from the nearby machine and ensure that this is clearly displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle prior to leaving. At the current time, tickets can only be purchased by coins.

A map showing the location of the pay and display bays in the Controlled Parking Zone can be accessed here.

St Albans Road Stop and Shop Bays

A number of pay and display bays are also situated along the length of St Albans Road and the adjacent side roads. Motorists should ensure that they check the signage adjacent to the bays. In St Albans Road, the maximum waiting time is 30 minutes. However, on the side roads, vehicles may park for a maximum of two hours. Loading bays are also located along the length of St Albans Road and motorists should ensure that they park fully within the marked pay and display bays and not the loading bays.
