Parking in Darwen town centre

Information on parking in Darwen town centre, charges and tariffs and where to find electric vehicle charging.

Bay/spaces may occasionally be out of use so please see the signs on site when you arrive.

Some car parks also have limited waiting restrictions.

Parking is also free in marked bays but some have time limits on use.

Please park your vehicle in one bay as this allows other motorists to make use of the adjacent bays.
