Town centre parking

Boston has ample affordable parking options available with over 1300 parking spaces within the town centre alone.

Each car park operates on a pay-and-display basis, which can be paid for using the on-site machine or via the MiPermit app on your mobile phone. In each car park, there is also the option to pay over the phone using the number on the car park machine.

Up-to-date Information and prices on the best car parks for your visit can be found on the Boston Borough Council website.

For more information, you can also download a comprehensive guide to all car parks in Boston. There is a mix of short-stay, mixed-stay, and long-stay car parks to suit your specific needs.

Our car park recommendations

We recommend using the Cattle Market (PE21 6RX) or Bargate Green (PE21 6RU) car parks for visits to the town centre, via Boston’s Pescod shopping quarter. This car park is also a short 5-minute walk to Maud Foster Mill making it the ideal base for exploring Boston’s historic attractions.

Custom Quay Car Park is another good option for visiting the Boston Guildhall and Fydell House and is a close walk to the market square, with Boston’s iconic Stump, surrounding restaurants, and shopping lanes. This is a smaller car park with limited spaces available, so it is best to get there early to avoid disappointment.

There is an alternative car park available further down South Square Road with more spaces available at PE21 6HX (South Square Car Park).
