The Sunday offer applies to all pay and display car parks operated by SLDC in the district, including the Westmorland Shopping Centre Car Park in Kendal, with the specific exceptions of the Brewery Arts Centre pay and display car park in Kendal and Miller Bridge car park at Ambleside.

No contract permit-holder only car parks are included in the offer.
