"Car Park is extortion racket do not use" Haworth Tourist Trap Tip by lizeratsi

Haworth Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Hello this is the main car park you see as you enter the town, its visible and its opp the Edinburgh Woollen Mill shop, its called the " changegate" car park.

They have been named and shamed on many a TV program, been spoken about in our house of commons, etc etc.

the reason is not only the clamping that is indiscriminate but they employ all sorts of tricks to get you.

They have people waiting for you to come in, they will drive out and stop and offer you their ticket....

they will fiddle with the clock to make you out of time

they use thier own vehicles to push you out of the parking bay boundaries and will do anything else to make sure you get a 75 pound clamp on your car!

Our b&B never warned us of this car park and not only is the fine steep and unfair but the men in there scare people, they are large and aggressive thugs and yet no pne in the village does anything about it.

Unique Suggestions: Do not go there, to this car park there are council run carpars - drive around, ask people, but do not park in the change gate car park. You will get clamped and it will ruin your experience.

Fun Alternatives: There are several other larger and properly run car parks in the village, not as easy to find as the rouge one, but they are there, drive around and ask people if neccasry but do not park in the rough stone un even car park oppostite the edinburgh woollen mill.
