Free Weekend Parking in December. Perfect for Christmas Shopping in Weymouth!
We are delighted to announce free weekend parking for Christmas Shoppers in Weymouth. Visitors to Weymouth will be able to park for free at weekends in Dorset Council Car Parks starting from Saturday 7th December. This coincides with Small Business Saturday on 7th December, where the town centre will be bursting with the hustle and bustle of shoppers going about their Christmas shopping.
The free weekend parking until the end of December is provided by Weymouth Town Council, Dorset Council, Weymouth BID and the Weymouth & Portland Chamber of Commerce, to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents.
Weymouth has something for everyone, alongside the Christmas shopping there will also be festive events happening in the town such as the Victorian Christmas Fayre near to the Melcombe Regis car park and the annual Chase the Pudding race on the beach. Find all the best Christmas activities in Weymouth on our dedicated Christmas page.
Additionally, throughout the month of December, our town will be celebrating the fairytale of Cinderella. All residents and visitors of Weymouth are invited to take part in the Cinderella Trail, which will be following the magical story as it is brought to life with light, sounds and animations in six story book settings, each on their own stage.
