Parking at PK Porthcurno

Parking at PK Porthcurno is available in both car parks located at the bottom of the Porthcurno Valley. PK Porthcurno operates both the car parks in the Valley and manages the public toilets in the lower car park. Tariffs in both car parks are the same, and you can park in one and pay in the other if necessary. Payment can be made using cash, chip and pin, contactless devices or via the “RingGo” app. If using the app please pay on arrival – otherwise, pay on exit. 

Please ensure that you have paid for your parking before driving away. The car parks are monitored by ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) so penalty charges are generated automatically if payment has not been made. Enforcement of parking charges and issuing penalties is undertaken by Premier Park

Please avoid idling in our car park for any longer than 10 minutes, as the cameras operate an automated licence plate recognition software and you will risk a fine.

Parking rates are seasonal. The current rates are:

0 to 2 hours£2.80
2 to 4 hours£5.50
ALL DAY£7.50
Charging Period: 09:00 to 18:00

Public Bus

There is a regular public bus service that stops at the entrance to the car parks.


We do not allow Coach parking in our car parks unless pre-arranged with PK Porthcurno.

Please email  with regards to coach parking.
