Private Parking For Seagulls In Looe, Cornwall - The Rest Of Us Have To Pay!

Seagull with private parking at Looe, Cornwall

It's all very well for the seagull to have reserved 'Private Parking' when in Looe, Cornwall but what about the rest of us when we visit. We have to cough up £4.70 for four hours and £5.70 for longer. 

The only consolation is that the Millpool car park does have a lovely view - as the photo below shows.

  1. I enjoyed the joke and also agree that the view makes the parking fee a bit more bearable. I'm assuming that the gulls are just as much of a problem, stealing food off the visitors, as they are at seaside resorts along our East coast. In Bridlington they've become quite insistent and vicious in their efforts to get the fish & chips.

    1. Thanks David. The gulls can be a problem. I saw one swoop down in Truro to snatch something a child was eating. Quite scary for the poor girl. Often the problem is that people encourage the gulls by feeding them, despite notices asking them not to do so.

  2. Perhaps a disguise would help Mike? You know what they say "If you can't beat them join them"
