Motorcycles can park for free in a number of places around the city, including:

  • Portsmouth City Council pay and display car parks (but not permit holder car parks), as long as they park completely within a marked bay
  • on-street pay and display areas except where indicated (check signs at the location)
  • for as long as required in residents’ parking zones

Car parks with marked bays specifically for motorcycles are: Ashby Place, Clarence Pier, Seafront D-Day, Guildhall Walk, The Harbour, London Road and Seafront The Esplanade – view a full list of council-run car parks.

Motorcycles must abide by restrictions in non-permitted limited waiting bays and may not park on double or single yellow lines, in taxi ranks, bus stops, disabled bays or loading bays.
