Parking in Bournemouth for bournemouth international centre

29
Found 6th Jun 2013
Im off to see Derren Brown on Saturday in bournemouth, now i only ever mainly go to bournemouth for work so i dont care how much parking costs.

As this is personal and now work, im after a cheap all day car park. All the ones ive looked at within walking distance, are about £12.50 all day.

Does anyone, know of any cheaper?

Thanks

If your employer pays for the expenses, can't think of any cheaper.
If they don't, why don't you park on the West cliff or on the other side of the gardens and walk 5/10 mins
That's what we do.

Edit: reread your text, that confused me 'As this is personal and now work' but you probably meant 'not work'.

probably cos there wont be any in the town centre on the seafront
Bournemouth is full of old people.

Follow an ambulance and sure enough they'll be collecting some old codger about to pop their clogs and will cart them off to hospital. Then you know their drive will be free for the rest of the day.

Exactly but I meant I didn't see ANY, that's why I don't use it. There are some though, I know as we use them but not on parkopedia

fair enough - I can see free areas in my home town areas (Shoreham-by-sea to Brighton)
I'm kidding, I love Bournemouth, they used to have a mega bowling place, is it still there?

It's Bowlplex now in Tower Park. More Poole than Bournemouth though.

Long Term parking in Bournemouth? Not really cheap options around the BIC. Head out about a 15 minute walk and there are better options (Madeira Road comes to mind).

Thanks for the sensible replies guys, I will look them up.

I did look on parkopedia but didn't really find anything cheap on there, and I did mean not work! Sorry about that.

Madeira road looks far on the map, is it only a 15 minute walk?

£3 for part day, 5 mins from J P Morgan, which I assume is quite close to the centre.
