Not only are cars more convenient and comfortable but they are also more practical too, especially if you have the kids in tow. However, one of the downsides of using your own car is that you have to find a safe and legal place to park, and in most instances, you have to pay for parking.

In some cities, you’ll shell out a lot more than in others.

With this in mind, Enjoy Travel has researched the cheapest and most expensive cities in the UK for parking, both in car parks and on-street.

In some cities, there is free on-street parking on weekends and public holidays. So, for comparison purposes, they looked at hourly and overnight midweek parking rates in locations within 30 minutes walking time of city centres. How does your city fare?
