Christmas Parking in Kirklees

christmas presents in the snow

Take advantage of free parking over the festive shopping period.

Whether you are looking for the perfect present for that awkward relative or a specific ingredient for a festive party – our town centres are home to a range of independent shops and market stalls that you just won’t find in an out of town shopping centre.

There are also plenty of well known shops and an array of places to stop for a drink or something to eat.

To make it even easier to get into our towns this year, we’re offering free parking sessions in Kirklees Council car parks and on street parking spaces in Dewsbury, Holmfirth and Huddersfield

  • no free sunday parking in Holmfrith ???? what a joke

  • Like Janine I’ve been looking forward to the Thursday Afternoon free parking, not sure that this is well advertised. I came looking to see if it was free today.

  • Last year you didnt advertise it well. last year people were still paying as no signs were put up. Ive seem this years signs. Shame on you. Money grabbing. Town will be dead soon the way your carrying on.

  • Hi Janine,

    We didn’t get a lot of take up when we offered free parking on a Thursday, so we are trialing Saturday afternoons when we know its busy instead.

    Hope you can still take advantage of it.



  • Hi Charlene

    You can find a list of all council car parks on our website: Parking in Kirklees



  • Hardly an incentive to go into town to support the stores.

  • Hi there,
    It is a great incentive that you have provided free parking in Hudderfield, Holmfirth and Dewsbury..I would like to know, in what areas in Dewsbury is the parking free..Thank You With Kind Regards,
