Buying a weekly ticket does not necessarily guarantee you a space for the the whole week. You will still need to find a space even if having paid in advance.

It is true that buying a weekly ticket does not guarantee you a space, however, it does depend on when you are going as to what spaces are likely to be available. Also, as discussed previously on the forum here, if you park somewhere that isn't massively convenient just to get yourself a space, when you get home after a day out, you can always move your car when the spaces free up in the evening.

Alternatively, get the best space you can one evening after arriving, unloading and doing your shopping, and then walk or use the fantastic train link from St Ives to St Erth and then onto the Penzance line to get places. I could get to St Ives and not move all week because it has so much there.

It's £33. The machines don't take notes or cards so bring plenty of £2 & £1 coins.

Hi there. We returned from a week stay in St Ives on 7th Aug and paid £33.00 for 7 days in the Island Car Park. The ticket allowed you to park in a range of car parks in and around St Ives.

Parking is a nightmare in St Ives and once we'd found the car park and a space we stayed in it, didn't get back into the car until the morning we left. Even then, at 5.30am when we pulled away someone else was waiting to take the place! Good luck. £33.00 didn't seem so bad on a daily basis.
