Finding somewhere to park in Crawley town centre can be a nightmare at the best of times. The problem becomes exacerbated when you then have to pay as well. Whilst you could drive around to find some free street parking OR even park just out of the town at one of the leisure car parks it can be much easier to find somewhere in the town centre. So where are the cheapest car parks in Crawley?

Cheapest car parks in Crawley town centre

Now there are a couple of car parks which are currently free including the old Morrisons car park. But with ANPR installed, no clear signage whether this will become a paid car park and with previous warnings of only 2 hours at a time it is almost a gamble if this is truely a free car park.

Here is our guide to the cheapest car parks in Crawley town centre. The prices quoted are for Mon-Fri parking and maybe subject to change at any time. We have listed prices for all day parking and for just 1 hour where available.

Stay healthy and well with Wellbeing Month at Crawley Library



Next week marks the start of Wellbeing Month across all 36 West Sussex libraries.

Throughout March, libraries will be celebrating all the ways that books, reading and local libraries can help people stay healthy and well.

Special events taking place include:

  • Wellbeing MOT’s – offering advice, help and support on healthy diet, weight loss, stopping smoking, reducing alcohol, and more.
  • West Sussex MIND – will be advising residents about their new campaign ‘Moving Minds’ and providing information about the mental health services they offer.
  • Apetito drop-in and free taster – come and sample some of the delicious foods on offer from West Sussex County Council’s Meals on Wheels provider Apetito, who provide hot meals to elderly and vulnerable people across the county (Southwick library only).

There will also be NHS health checks, reminiscence taster sessions, story walks for children, games for families. Plus regular events including Knit and Natter, Relax with Colouring and ‘Melody for the Mind’, a singing group for people with dementia and their carers.

‘Melody for the Mind’ sessions are currently run at Broadfield, East Grinstead and Southwick Libraries, with a brand-new session starting at Chichester on Thursday 5 March.

Duncan Crow, Cabinet Member for Fire and Rescue and Communities, said:

“Libraries always have communities at the heart of everything they do, and this month is no exception.

“Wellbeing, both physical and emotional, is so important and the programme that has been created by the libraries team for Wellbeing Month has a variety of great activities, events and reading that will hopefully make our residents feel happier and healthier in mind and body.”

All libraries will have displays of books chosen by library staff to lift the readers mood and help them feel better. The genres range from uplifting poetry to non-fiction titles with practical advice for difficult times.
