Travel Information

If travelling to the Civil Registry Office by car, we recommend that you check in advance your parking options. There are various free disc parking zones nearby, as well as convenient car parks, some of which can be paid for prior online. If you need to get hold of a parking disc they are usually available from vehicle hire firms, the Sea Terminal, Douglas, Police Stations, Post Offices and local Commissioners' Offices throughout the Island. Please use the links to understand your options prior to visiting the Civil Registry as parking may not always be available at your parking place of choice.
