Drivers in South Oxfordshire can benefit from free parking in district council car parks on certain days in December. This annual free parking tradition is designed to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents. The free parking days allocated to each area are agreed with the individual town councils depending on which day would best suit local traders.

Free Christmas parking days also means people don’t have to pay to park if they wish to catch up with friends and family in the pubs, cafés and restaurants during the festive period.
