Newquay has been named as the seaside town with the second priciest parking in the country this Easter half-term.

New data shows holidaymakers going to Newquay this half term will spend more on parking than they would at any other Cornish seaside.

The study uses Parkopedia to determine the cheapest and most expensive seaside spots to park your car during the Easter holidays.

In a new study conducted by car check experts, Motorscan, Brighton has been ranked as the most expensive seaside to park your car this Easter holiday.  

Collating data via Parkopedia, the study evaluates the average parking costs across 30 prominent UK seasides. The analysis focuses on parking spots available on an eight-hour basis within a 30-minute or less walking distance from the centre. 

Parents always look for ways to keep their kids entertained during half term, and a beach trip is a top choice. However, parking costs can put a dampener on the day. 

This is particularly true in Brighton, which takes the top spot as the seaside with the most expensive parking, averaging at £24.21 for an eight-hour stay.  

Ranking as second most expensive is popular Cornish town, Newquay, where the average parking fee stands at £12.32 for eight hours. While still a significant expense, this rate is half that of Brighton's, offering a much more affordable option. 

Claiming the third spot is another beloved Cornish spot, Falmouth, with a marginal difference of just £0.20, totalling £12.12 for parking over the same period. 

Southend-on-Sea claims the fourth spot with an average cost of £11.50, while Bournemouth, a popular Dorset seaside destination, follows closely behind in fifth place with an average of £10.42 for eight hours.
