A message to all Franks customers in Towcester

On Monday 23rd July, the A5 (Watling Street) through Towcester will be closed for approximately 17 weeks whilst roadworks take place; this means parking in Towcester, along Watling Street, is going to be tricky.

Due to one of our Franks restaurants being on Watling street, we want to inform our customers not to worry; there are still plenty of places to park with a short walking distance to Franks which are free, have disabled access and offer electrical car hook ups.

Take a look below for all the best, FREE parking in Towcester:

Tove Short Stay, Northampton Road, Towcester

This car park is just off of Watling Street and offers secure parking in a newly built car park; only minutes from Franks. The walk to Franks includes crossing the road twice but both have zebra crossings with traffic lights.

As you can see in the image below, there is also more parking available all around the entrance to the car park, meaning the chances of not finding a space is unlikely.

The car park offers disabled access, electrical car hook up points as well as bike racks to secure your bike if you decided to cycle.

Open: Monday to Sunday 24 hours

Restrictions: 3 hour max stay, no return within 3 hrs Mon-Fri 8:00 am till 6:00pm

Additional information: 6 disabled spaces available. There are two bays with charging points reserved for electric cars.

Cost: Free of charge

Richmond Road, Towcester

Richmond Road car park is the closest to Franks as there is a short cut at the back of the car park which allows you to go through ‘Sponne Yard’ and come out on Watling street. You can then take a right and walk the final few metres to the restaurant. The red line on the image below shows the walkthrough.

Open: Monday to Sunday 24 hours

Additional information: Disabled spaces available

Cost: Free of charge

Whatever the occasion, this car park is free to use all day and has disabled spaces available.
