    Just thinking, as anyone headed off to a destination in their motorhome and came across a place they never heard of, say by way of a stopover and found it so " THEM " that they never reached intended destination lol !! ..... happened to me n wife touring France but with Spain our destination, needed a place to stopover as we travelled along, we never knew about, "Meze", near Cap d' Agde,
    we ended up parked on outskirt of this smallish kind of town, an Aire on country lane ( free,+ water /dump ) basic but not hemmed in on tarmac etc, open field aspect, 2 nights spent without realizing Meze had a smashing beach . harbour and eating places, + a well used boules area with consistant games going on ( Aug ), supermarkets as well, upon exploring, the place was so nice and not over tourist related, we stopped 3 weeks and never got to Spain lol.... so as this happened to you ? and where ??

    I almost always stay in laybys, carparks, side of the road etc.
    Dispite what some will say, its fine and isnt illegal in any way.
    In a car park, if it says something like 'no parking between 8pm and 8am'.
    That is legally enforcable.

    I almost always stay in laybys, carparks, side of the road etc.
    Dispite what some will say, its fine and isnt illegal in any way.
    In a car park, if it says something like 'no parking between 8pm and 8am'.
    That is legally enforcable.
    However if a sign says something like 'no overnight sleeping' it is not enforcable because there is no legal definition of 'overnight'.
    The signs must say what vehicles and state a times between that they are not allowed to park.
    But I tend to stick to the rule of, if there is any sign trying to stop it, I dont stay. Even if I know its not a legal sign because Im not out to annoy anyone.

    As for in the side if the road or a layby.
    Providing you dont get tables and chairs out etc, you are parking and not camping, so anywhere you can legally park, you can sleep.
    We tend to pull up late, close the curtains and just go to sleep.
    I often park in industrial estates but make sure you stay on the public road bit and are prepared to move off when people start showing up for work.

    Many places I use often have the police drive by at some point, they have a look, prob do a PNC check on the motorhome to check its insured etc, they never disturb us and often wave or smile back to me.

    I only stay in one place for one night, so I dont bother any one and I am always happy to move on if asked, with this attitude we havent had a problem ever in 36 years of doing it.
    Its great to have the freedom to go where and when you want with no planning, which for me is the point of a motorhome.

    As for Orpington. I dont know it sorry.
    Canterbury park and ride overnight area is nice and was £3.50 a night last time we used it.

    Having travelled in Europe for a few years we have a few stopover/aires/sites that we use on our travels for convenience or because they are good sites on which to stay. Our regulars are Montreuil sur mer as its free, has good restaurants and shops plus its less hour from calais and free from migrant problems; Honfleur usually as we head down west coast to visit Eleclerc for loading up the fridge, wine and diesel; Sommieres because its a beautiful city and others. How about you?
