Free parking outside of controlled hours

If you want to park in Kingston, Norbiton or Surbiton you may have to pay for short-term parking during certain hours unless you have a parking permit. Many streets in these areas are in a controlled parking zone but outside the days or hours of parking restrictions, you can park for free.

In all other areas of the borough, you may be charged for parking on a main road during certain hours, but you will be able to park for free on a nearby street. 

Check bank holidays, public holidays and late nights (parking zones) to see when any normal parking restrictions are lifted.
