Car parking charges for the 2020 Hoppings fun fair on Newcastle’s town moor are set to increase. Find out the costs if you’re taking a car, motorcycle, caravan, Winnebago or other vehicle to the fun fair.
In recent years those taking a vehicle to the annual extravaganza have been asked to shell out £3 or £3.50 for parking. In 2020 that fee will increase to £4 but motorists will receive two 50p off ride vouchers to offset the additional charge.
Organisers are hoping that many will opt to use public transport and travel by bus or Metro to the site to help reduce traffic congestion and queuing as well as emissions. To this end the fair has teamed up with public transport giant Arriva to encourage use of their lovely teal-coloured transportation devices.
A range of regular and express services stop at the Hoppings entrance on Forsyth Road in Newcastle.
There’s not too long to wait now until thousands flock to the fair to thrill to the effects of white-knuckle rides like Air, the Bomber and Vertigo. Rides for 2020 are still to be confirmed and we’ll have more information soon.
